Well, I took my sissy bar off today it was a goofy lookin thing anyway. It was an old school chrome bar with no pad and a giant "1" on it. The bike looks so much better without it. I may go with a solo seat and a bobbed rear fender. I will decide by this winter. If I had a digicam I would post pics. Any one want a goofy lookin sissy bar? Ill trade it for a digicam :D

No prob dude! Not exactly the "1" I was looking for but I'll bet someone on E-bay will buy it! The item I'm looking for is the classic stars and bars like Evel had on his jacket

Hmm. and I was going to cut it up. Was planning on taking the "1" out replacing it with something else and re chroming it. May hang on to It now, but the pad is missing. Isuppose I could make one that would fit.

No It bolts to the fender supports. I think I am going to keep it. I may have it re chromed and use it. Havent decided what I want to do with the style of the bike yet.
