I bought a stash of new and used parts from a dealer and included was this 12 (short version) chrome backrest in excellent condition for the small-spool soft bag 111 bikes: the Chief, Classic and Vintage (Dark Horse versions of those models too). Your spools must have the black plastic sleeves installed. The chrome backrest is in excellent shape with no visible rust, not bent, no road rash. It includes instructions and the oft missing tamper resistant screws for theft prevention.The luggage rack has been lightly used, no damage but maybe some very light scratches from regular use. Most visible signs of use is the desert tan leather pad, it shows some light marks on rear side above the "Indian" logo, also has a couple dirt smudges. See last 2 pics, I did my best to show them.
Remember, this is a genuine Indian OEM backrest, see logo in cross bar. I would much rather have used genuine Indian parts than new 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, flush studs and actual desert tan as opposed to the import with exposed staples, rippled bumpy stitching edges and studs that look like they are falling out.
