My wife wants a taller backrest for her and I would like a small luggage rack on the back so I'm going to custom make something and have it powder coated and upholstered by professionals. Is there anyone on here who would be interested in either a taller backrest or a small luggage rack? Mine will be a combo of both but I can just as easily make them separate if anyone is interested in one but not the other. The luggage rack will be small and follow the line of the rear fender. The backrest will sit flush on top of the stock backrest and extend up 5-6 inches.

I went with the CatRack and am adding a couple of uprights to attach baggage. Unfortunately no need for a backrest as my lovely wife of 35 years does not share my love of riding.

And I ended up attaching the Honda backrest to the uprights using 8" angle irons. Brought the backrest up about an extra 4 or 5 inches. Having an issue figuring out the picture thing unfortunately. Working on it.

I posted a video over on my Cross Canada Run thread. It shows the backrest set up.
