Default Harley passenger back rest help!

Ok so I have an 88' 883 with a bob fender and should be irrelevant to an oem fender, however I believe the HD back rest I have is from a 2003 sporty so the fender struts are probably positioned differently. This is a detachable back rest so my question is can I get a docking mount for this back rest?! Does anyone even make a passenger back rest for this bike?! I can't find any hardware or dock mount for this bike anywhere!

Looks like you got one for a straight strut model. Nice rigid project!

I don't think I've ever seen a detachable for the curved struts...
