PostSubject: Chinese sissybar /backrest purchase   Tue Oct 06, 2015 7:03 pm

Hi Guys well i took the gamble on sending for a Chinese Sissy bar and rack mainly cost ?? so i waited in anticipation and they were here within the week i opened the box and was quite surprised as to the quality yes it was not 100% perfect i.e. the welding was a little over the top but i wasn't worried about that and the chroming was not top class but i was pleasantly surprised and i am sure if cared for well it last will last a good many miles it fitted good the only thing i did was put rubber washers between the rear fender guard and the sissy bar brackets so the chrome wasn't rubbing together  hence i had to then use slightly longer bolts so there you have it that's my opinion on my recent purchase.

There's a lot of good stuff coming from China these days! they've certainly raised the quality over the past year or two, glad you like your purchase

Well done Drifter got to agree with Sim


(There's a lot of good stuff coming from China these days! they've certainly raised the quality over the past year or two)

 just don't use abrasive cleaners on it or the chrome will disappear. I have got loads from China and found them ok.

Sounds good if the price is right, any chance of a link/price?
My friend says he has bought chromed items from China, his advice is simply to keep a little protection applied to help fend of UK weather conditions.

Good idea, I'd wait till the chrome starts showing signs of peeling or rust personally though    There's always the option of a bit Black powder coating if the sparkle drops off too? Black on Black looks good 'Boss' as we all know!
