I bought a stash of parts from a dealer and included was this 12 (short version) quick release chrome backrest in excellent condition for the large-spool hard-bag 111 bikes: the Chieftain, Roadmaster and Springfield (Dark Horse, Limited and Elite versions of those models too). Easy to install and remove. Instructions and theft resistant screws included (these are usually missing on used backrests). Backrest shows no road rash, no damage, no visible rust, not bent or cracked. About the only sign of use is some marks from bungee cord hooks on lower upright tubes, see last pics.The luggage rack shows some very light marks in chrome from normal use. The leather pad is nice, no signs of wear but there are some light scratches in the leather front, probably from storage or swinging a leg over the seat. I did my best to show any imperfections. Will look great on your bike.
Remember, this is a genuine Indian OEM backrest, see logo in cross bar. I would much rather have genuine Indian parts than aftermarket parts made in China. For example, the genuine Indian luggage rack weighs 3 lb, 13 oz but the aftermarket one weighs 2 lb, 13 oz. The Indian part weighs 1 lb more which is 35% heavier stronger? The OEM Indian pad has hidden staples, smoother stitching and flush studs as opposed to the import with exposed staples, rippled bumpy stitching edges and studs that look like they are falling out.
