Burly Tall Black Sissy Bar For Harley Sportster 2004-2015
Well-made and easy to install
Title says it all, really - I had initially bought a cheaper (and inferior) sissy bar from a certain auction website and the difference between that and the Burly version was like arctic night and tropical day.
Clean welds, simple to install and just the right dimensions. I'm using it solely for luggage, not a passenger, so I can't speak to the comfort level, but I'm pretty damned happy with the purchase.
One minor point - the longer bolts supplied with this use an imperial, not metric, allen wrench. Took me a little digging to find one of those in my toolbox.

Straight forward kids.
Its clean, minimal, does the job. I'm a pretty new rider and am just now comfortable enough to have the lady on the back. I have that Rough Crafts diamond stitch solo saddle with the passenger pad. That along with this sissy bar are more than comfortable enough for doing errands around the city she says. She feels way more secure with this sissy bar for her to lean against then with nothing there. The pad on it is small and its not the most comfortable for long hauls, but overall for her its more than adequate.
Also, strapping my medium rucksack to it is super easy.

Awesome, simple sissy bar
This sissy bar is awesome, I put it on my 72 and it looks and functions great. I have custom made seats so I sent in the pad it came with in to get it stitched up with real leather to match. I feel like if you know how to weld it wouldn't be too hard to replicate, that's the only reason the bang for your buck isn't rated all the way up. Otherwise I love this thing.

Simple and sexy!
This is pretty strait forward friends. Easy four bolt mounting, very sturdy, and pretty comfortable. I went with this sissy bar because of its simplicity. I didn't like the looks, price and bulkiness of the ones Harley sold and couldn't really find anything in the price range I wanted. Uhhh...plus its made in Merica! 'Nuff said!

Good Metal - Bad backrest pad
Now that i have my wife use the backrest its time to write the review after 6 months of the purchase.
Why i got this: the cheapest available, good looking sissy bar out there. Fits perfect with my 2011 Sportster 883 low.
Goods: Sturdy, Tall
Bad: The backrest pad is not good at all.
Fit: Spent a good half hour to install it.
No issues at all. Sturdy enough. Went for the tall one so that for my long rides i can used any backpack and use it with the tall one.

Looks good and does the job
Bought this for my forty eight. I wanted it for both style and function for two up riding. It is nice and clean, much better than the overpriced HD sissy bar. Easy to install and does the job. I always get asked about it, so they did something right.

Quality is amazing
I was debating between this sissy bar and the one that HD sells , but decided to go with this one since the bottom portion that attaches to the bike was slimmer and cleaner than the HD one. Its definitely not a quick release type of sissy bar and is kind of a pain in the butt to install.
Tips: Make sure all bolts are in before tightening. If you insert one bolt at a time and tighten them, you won't be able to align it correctly to get the other bolts in. w
