    Backrest pad, mounting bracket, spacers, and screws
Heritage Low Backrest Pad is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Happy Wife Happy Life I purchased this backrest to replace the smaller backrest that came stock on my 2008 Heritage Softail, which was uncomfortable for my wife on any long trip. It matches the replacement passenger seat and stock saddle bags and offers a bit more support for the navigator that rides behind me. It was easy to install except for one small issue. My 2008 is the 105 Anniversary Issue and it has a small commemorative plaque on the back of the sissy bar that needed to be removed before I could install the new backrest. It is glued to the sissy bar with a sticky foam mounting surface which I had to pry off to get at the center screw that mounts the new backrest. I was able to reinstall the plaque with the same sticky foam, but I am concerned about its integrity now. My wife likes the added support and the new backrest looks great on the bike.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Addition to Heritage I installed this on my Heritage about a week ago, and after a couple hundred miles of "testing" the wife says it is great... It is about 2 1/2 inches wider than the stock backrest and cradles her back much better as it is more concave... It also looks great on the bike.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Improves Both Looks and Comfort This backrest provides a more comfortable ride for the passenger, at the same time adds greatly to the look of the bike. Only addition that has to be made is to the installation instructions. It is only necessary to remove the metal piece, so as to get to the top screw. I started to remove the whole leather piece before I wised up.
