Go to www.scootworks.com They don't have it listed on their site but you can call them. I can't remember the name of the company but I think around $125.00 for one. It's none adjustable and won't let down. Thought about getting me one but I ordered a solo Mustang with a drivers back rest. It's made by Pro Tac. They don't list one for the 1300 C but they do sell them. Talk with Debbie at Scootworks.

Scootworks does not offer a driver's backrest for the 1300C (as of 7/3/07)

Try Protac in south Carolina. I obtained a backrest from them for $125.00 and it was simple to instal and just what I was looking for.
I have an 04 "C". Just contact Harold at [email protected] for more info/pictures. :)

Just a quick note for if you need a backrest because of a sore back on the C: Alot of us with C's get sore backs because the bars put us in an unnatural position. IMHO: If you need the backrest for this reason you might want to try some 1800s bars first.

Why change to 1800 bars when you can get risers for the C bars that would bring your hands back and put you in a more comfortable position.
I think Bad-X is doing backrests for a C seats now.
Here's what I did for a backrest, I have a 1300C but I used a 1800C seat.

Could you explain a bit more about what help the risers give? I'm not a tall person - 5'9", 185 lbs, so I don't know what I would gain from risers

There are many styles and configurations to go with, but changing the height and pullback of the bars improves your reach and posture whether you go with bars or risers, I got mine from wishmasterg on here and noticed an improvement in overall riding position. Im not sure but I believe anything over 4" will require longer cables.Good Luck

Because risers won't cure the problem. They only bring the bars up and back a couple inches and that isn't enough with the C bars to alleviate the back pain and stretched arms on a cruiser. A backrest doesn't do alot of good if the back pain is from the position the bars and risers put you in. They only help if your back is in a position where support will help. I've tried both and only better bars helped. In fact, the stock seat might even be good enough if one went to better bars with alot more pullback. Check this out:
