Finally got my backrest from USA.
As you can see, this will not fit direct. Need to cut off some obstructions and extend the bracket on the backrest so the holes align with the ones in the underside of the seat. Should be done on Monday.

you do get what you pay for. I will probably upgrade my Grasshopper to an adjustable one. Can afford to now. Got to get some good out of the grasshopper first. This one looks good on the bike.
