I bought a stash of parts from a dealer and included was this genuine Indian 14 tall 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).
Indian website says not available until November. No rust, not bent or cracked, only sign of use is a small rub mark in chrome on under side of left rear corner of luggage rack, probably not even visible when on bike, see last pics. 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. The item "Indian OEM passenger sissy bar backrest pad rack Chieftain Roadmaster Springfiel" is in sale since Thursday, September 26, 2019.
