Poor Finish

Chrome plate started flaking off after one year. Easy to install, wife say they work well. These are getting powder coated and kept for the long term.

Great product, so far.

I recently installed these arm rests and are very satisfied with them. I have not had them on long enough for the rust issues others have mentioned to be a factor. Perhaps in time it will be. But for now, my wife really loves them, and the installation was pretty straight forward. The only issue there was that it didn't seem like the bend the mounting brackets came with matched the bend on my bike between the trunk and the speaker housings. So I added a bit to the bend and they matched up perfectly. A minor amount of custom fitting. Otherwise, they mounted easily enough - measure twice, drill once. I found it helpful to have someone hold them in place as I measured where the holes were to go. Note: these are for arms only, not for body weight. I can see where if too much weight was applied to them that they would likely fail or deform. I had to instruct my wife to not use these to steady herself when mounting or dismounting. Her initial instinct was to do that. We do like the fact that these remain laterally secure v. the ones that rotate outward. Egress is the only complaint others have mentioned should the need arise to get off the bike quickly. The ones that rotate laterally do avoid that potential issue. If that's a concern for you, you may wish to give it some thought. For us, I can only say that if she needs to depart the bike quickly, I trust she'll make it happen as necessary.

Rusts quickly

Had these about 18 months and they are pitting and rusting even though they are polished and cleaned regularly. They are great looking rests though and work well, I think I will get them re-chromed over the winter months.
