Found this one here:

https://www.ebay.com/itm/Honda-Silverwing-Reflex-Drivers-Backrest-kit-Complete-SALE-59/270772988952?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649


It was received fairly promptly, and the instructions were fairly straightforward. One thing not mentioned I will point out for anyone else that buys one. Then you attach your bike's steel 'tracks', don't cinch the nuts down taught. That's what's visible in the shot where I am holding up the cover pad. You want to leave some slop. Otherwise, you won't be able to slide them all the way up under the seat. Also, it was easiest to install the tracks to the mount, mount to the seat, first. Only then do you want to bolt on the OEM rest.

That pad that covers the nuts amounts to just 'better than nothing'. However, I think I will do something with foam and black duct-tape.
If it works out, I'll have a local upholstery guy dress it up properly in black vinyl. Rode it to pick up some groceries, and it seems to be worthwhile so far. Motor-Mate OEM backrest riser kit Padup10

I have the same one. Sooo much more leg room backrest is a solid metal part. You won't regret buying it I didn't, I changed the angle a bit with spacers and a bit longer bolts where it bolts on to OE rest.

Nice photos.

That is the exact one I bought back when my SW was new! I love it! Only caveat for me, if you do two-up riding it is easier to take it off for that. Takes 5 min or so. Enjoy!
