Cool grasshopper backrest pictures

i searched online and couldn't find pictures of how the grasshopper driver backrest is installed so i decided to upload pictures. without a pocket the backrest is only $77 and $10 extra for a pocket. i can finally put my feet up on the highway pegs and relax on my long rides to work.

These seats aren't the HIGHEST quality, but in my opinion, are great for the price. Also the mount leaves you some room to re-engineer the fit. My buddy with a HD Softail has one.

I'm gonna hit the highway like a battering ram, on a silver-black PHANTOM bike!

rode a Grasshopper backrest on my Suzuki for 2 years. Had no issues what so ever. I like the way they are designed to be removable with no tools.

Yeah I agree. I had to wrap some electrical tape to stop it from falling out. I might add something to push it forward some but overall it serves its purpose.

Had one on my Shadow 1100 for 5 years, found it very comfortable and useful... maybe new company that bought them out is not so good on quality control ?

Used one a couple years till my stock seat got to me. Worked good. Moved up to a ultimate ate seat with back rest.

Realized that stock seat sucks. Has anyone used a fake, Chinese grasshopper. Seeing them on eBay for cheap. Looks like they mount the same as grasshopper
