Sissy Bar

Got this off Amazon for about $60. It's marketed for Sportsters. I can post a link later. Looks good enough to me.

Looks good. What was the fitting like? Did you need to customize it to fit the fender?

To me it just looks way to big for the bike.
I am hoping to find a shorter one with a quick disconnect so I can remove it when the wife isn't riding with me.

No customization but there was some forceful squeezing to get things all lined up. I ended up getting different hardware from Home Depot to feel better about all the mounting.

Extra big is what I was going for. I know it's not for everyone.

That is pretty tall but looks nice too. Also looks like it lays back pretty far. I as well was wanting something to take off easy when I donít have my wife with me which is rare. So I just had to make my own. It come up just passed mid back. Once I get the passenger seat on it should be around mid back level. I still have to make a back pad for it too.

Here is what the base of it looks like. Since I made my own rear rack I made it so it sits on the rail and bolts with the single bolt on the rear of the passenger seat for quick removal and replacement.

I don't get the point of these. The Rebel is my first bike so my moto knowledge is limited. Don't take that as a slight in any way. I just don't get it.

Also kinda looks like a dong. ?
