Sprint ST Modifications
Backrest (requires Triumph
|Mod done by
The backrest came out pretty nice, I used a Kawasaki Concours backrest and a
piece of angle iron; I bolted the angle iron to the second bolt holes in the
toprack and I drilled two more holes in the front cross member; Then I painted
everything and bolted the backrest to the angle iron below the rack. The angle
is probably a bit straighter than ideal but we rode today and Dee said it was
great. The backrest has a basket weave pattern on the face so it is not a
perfect match but does not look out of place. It will negate the use of a top
case, but all we wanted the rack for was tent and sleeping bags, so I think
this will fit the bill just fine until someone comes up with something better.
Now we are ready for some real rides.
