Aftermarket Sissy Bar
Just purchased a new v star 1300 last month for a college graduation present to myself. I'm look for a quality sissy bar but just not up to paying over $600 for an OEM setup. I have searched and searched to find something that looks good and functional and would like your opinion on the brands out there. Photos if you have them would be great too.
Thanks in advance.
Bryan

Aftermarket Sissy Bar
@Bvbrunner I recently purchased the Cobra sissy bar and luggage rack. It's very nice and sturdy. It doesn't work well with the Mustang seat, but I crammed it in there because I wasn't giving up the comfort for my passenger. And the bar alone (no rack) was 1/3 the OEM cost you posted. Mine is a 950, but it can be had for 1300 also.

Aftermarket Sissy Bar
Just keep in mind how tall you want it. The one on eBay, while cheaper, has short arms so it will hit the passenger at the lower back and is also angled back pretty far.
Good luck!
