Hi

Stil looking for a backrest and I came across Bestem USA. Anyone have one of their backrests? The price is good @ $280 with the rack. I have a 08 1300C.

I have a Bestem.
Prone to rust in the corners and the bolt heads rust easily.
I replaced my bolts with a second set from Bestem and they rusted in just a couple of weeks.
Check out D2Moto http://www.d2moto.com/p-5674-honda-vtx-1800c-1300c-deluxe-sissy-bar-backrest.aspx

comes to less than 30 bucks with BF40 coupon code.

Hard to believe it is so cheap. Can't be much cheaper built than the Bestem.
(which I still have on the bike)

I've got the one from Bestem. I ride in all weather and the only rust I've seen is a little surface rust underneath the mounting bolts. Doesn't even show with it all put together.

Worst transaction experience I have ever had. Hardware did not fit at all - even after they sent extra. Took about a month to get a refund. Not me.

Purchased a Cobra backrest, guess I will have to save my quarters to buy the highly over priced formed LAZER CUT ( wooooo ) rack. :icon_ange
