I'm in need of a backrest for my scooter. I've found the Ultimate $199 thing, but I'm hoping I can get something cheaper than that. If I take my seat to a scooter shop, can they fix me up for a reasonable price? Any other suggestions? Thanks.
I've ordered a backrest pad. I'm going to build the framework and mount it to the rear bolts of the passenger hand rails. I saw this done during my google searches, looks like an easy and effective solution for about $20.
Great trick on the CFMoto Fashion if you have the top-case..... reverse the top-case mounting bracket. This moves the top-case forward. You can them modify a small cushion to Velcro to the case. Unfortunately you lose the passenger seat, but makes for a highly comfortable highway cruizer
Would you buy a used scooter from this guy?

Great idea? Sounds comfy. I have the "Voyager", which is baffling. I don't see where CF Moto made a "voyager", the only "Voyager 250: is SYN, and it is definitely not a SYN. It's an odd ball. But it does have the "tour-pak". I'll consider that. I don't have passengers so that doesn't matter, my fat butt is enough for this little bike!
WHOA!! OUCH!! trying to bend a 3/8 rod is not easy BRO, did you try to bend it just with both of your hands? Best is stick one end into something like a vise or anything to hold one end and with your body push. Hope all is good with your back Blu, don't be over exhorting yourself now you will have to take it easy for a while. Alleyoop
It was in a vice, pulled with one hand. My back is in serious trouble right now. My doctor has ignored me for 10 years, and now it's finished. Trying some physical therapy, but I know darn well it's going to require surgery. As for the rod, Home Depot only has 36" rods, not long enough. Now I'm thinking a two piece frame.
The sissy bar I bent seemed to be some real strong spring steel. It was thin tubing and bent easily with a map gas torch. Hard to explain but the bottom an open ends (one long piece bent doubled) faced rearwards. I reversed it pointing them forward and had to change the angle of the upright part. The 2 ends were then drilled and bolted to the seat pan on the majesty. I also had to reverse the back pad so it would face forwards
