After lots of late nights reading on Facebook in several SW groups and offcourse on the SilverWing 600 forum and checking out the World Wilde interWeb. I made my one of kind backrest 2day. Took it for a short ride and I'm happy sofar.
It needs thicker iron support, next week I'll check some shops in my town.
For now it's a great improvement for riding in comfort.
Hopefully I can finish it next week completly.
Have a great day en Stay Safe 🙏🏼
Greetings from The Netherlands 😉

Hey everybody, here's an update on my backrest. 2Day I bought the thicker iron bar [2 cm wide x 3 mm thick], bend and pianted it. Then fitted it on my SW. So much better now. The flex is gone and now I have a strong backrest. Only thing left is to think about covering the iron with some sort of soft patting. That takes some time.
Have a great evening all & Stay safe 🙏🏼My one off backrest Img_2018

I used black foam pipe insulation on mine, the tube type that has a slit in it for installing it over pipes.

Dutch Silverwing, greetings from North Carolina in the USA! I have been looking at the backrest you made and really like it! I must compliment you! May I please ask you whether you used the existing “but rest” and converted it into a backrest? If so, with what did you replace the but rest? Also, did you manage to cover the metal parts? A few additional pictures showing what you did would be appreciated! Also, how did you bend the metal support brackets to get the curves? Thank you!
