One-Piece H-D Detachables Sissy Bar Upright

Part Number 52300040A


Finish / Color: Chrome



The sweeping shape of this slim, solid bar Sissy Bar Upright completes the classic bobber look. The one-piece design eliminates separate sideplates for a clean appearance, and the stylized upper kick angle mimics the old-school sissy bars of the 50s and 60s.

  • Chrome finish
  • Can be equipped with Passenger Backrest Pad P/N 52631-07 (black) or 52300026 (brown)

Fits '04-later XL models (except '16-later XL1200CX). All models require separate purchase of Docking Hardware Kit (see docking hardware matrix). Docking hardware is original equipment on XL1200T models.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great sissy bar I've been using this sissy bar for 7 years and its still my favorite of the 4 bars i switch between on my two bikes. the ol lady loves it to. its low and a smaller profile but feels like a much bigger bar/pad. i highly recommend it. you wont be disappointed..

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Look and Fit Wife wanted a backrest for her 2016 XL1200CP. She picked out this one for the looks and one piece design (cheaper than side plates and bar). The parts guy got us the correct mounting hardware. The bar was heavier (stronger) than expected. Super easy to install approx. 10 min. perfect fit, looks great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Looks good Fit perfect after a shim adjustment Docking kit worked. It fit a little tight. Added shim on both sides. Latches real smooth & easy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good fit for 2014 SuperLow 1200T Bought the one piece detachable sissy bar (part #: 52300040A) for my 2014 SuperLow 1200T (XL 1200T). Returned the first sissy bar due to chipped chrome and scratches, the second one I ordered was ok. Also ordered backrest pad (part #: 52631-07), which fits the sissy bar well, and my wife says it's comfortable.The XL 1200T already has the docking hardware in place for the saddlebags (you do NOT need to buy additional docking hardware to attach the sissy bar). Initial install takes some effort to get the sissy bar into the docking ports. Looks awesome once in place. The sissy bar and saddlebags round out the bike nicely. The sissy bar and backrest pad are overpriced, but I could not find another decent option.

can you attach a luggage rack to this?

is this compatible with the luggage rack?
Asked by: jerdude73
Hey jerdude73, Sorry, this wouldn't work with a rack on your 2011 XL1200C. All of the racks for your bike need to be mounted using the traditional sideplates and sissy bar.
