HOW DOES THIS TIE INTO CUSTOM SISSY BUILDING?
basically, the thing was meant to use with a hog-style sissy,
it lets you bypass the massive trunk rack or grab rail.
btw, the grab rail in the auction doesnt appear to have an upper loop like others ive seen.
they possibly had several styles? he could have taken more/better pics but this one
appears to be the most useful to a naked builder. . .
theyre still massive imho.
i like what you said about using harley replacement -style sissy setup.
they came in abunch of lenghths and style variations, in many frame widths.
it depended a lot on which YEAR yor hog was, more than which model you had.
you may need a different-width sissy,
depending on how much of the trunk support stuff you want to keep.
and, if you choose not to have fun and build these brackets,
the nice thing is that the 'classic' harley models used straight flat stock for brackets,
with hefty boxed receivers attached.
so, in an auction, you should be able to tell in the pics. . .
bracket will be straight, flat, (no curved surfaces or bends to speak of)
as opposed to some of the newer models with less conventional design,
then you can be a drilling fool and make it work.
can you see a potential problem in my pics? i'm not sure what that seat's from, , ,possibly a 1200?
passenger area of the seat looks wider than what the sissy will want.
i need to find a stock 'beavertail' seat, i think they look nicer anyway.
not to plagiarize, but zryder's delectable fattank bike is a gr8 example of improvising a nice sissy.
(though he used honda shadow, not harley-- there are many options happily)
here it is again.
pleasant dreams of naked machines, all
