i found that no matter wherei looked at online, that the backrests available did not meet my needs! or more specifically my girfriends!
they were either too small, too low, or meant i had to lose my rentec sports rack (not happening).
I wanted a big comfy back pad, adjustable in height, and rake.....that i could still keep my rack... so i decided to make my own.

The first thing i did, was source a comfy backpad. What better than a goldwing pad -for 2 quid- from ebay?
