SMART MOUNT™ BACKREST, Passenger, For Honda GL1800 F6B, Made in USA
I decided to try to save a hundred dollars or so by going with the Show Chrome backrest instead of the OEM one. I understand that one gets what one pays for, but at $160 plus mounting brackets I was hoping for better quality. Getting the brackets and upright installed was a breeze, even with all of the awkward angled spacers. Unfortunately, the mounting for the actual backrest cushion is a joke. There are six holes in the riser, but you only use two 5mm screws to hold it on. The other four are dummies. So what you get is a pad that wobbles like crazy at 45 mph before tearing off and bouncing down the road into a ditch. 3/5 for the framework, -1/5 for the cushion attachment. I shouldn't have to do my own engineering to make a product work and look as advertised.
And we can't wait to show you how it's done!
