First Grasshopper backrest I've owned and it meets or exceeds all my expectations. I have a 2018 Chieftain Limited and was quite surprised to see the white stitching on the backrest matching the stitching on the seat. The backrest is easy to install and for the money cannot be beat.
I had a Grasshopper backrest on my 07 Harley Heritage Softail and loved it. Now have one on my Indian Chieftain, so far love it. Price can't be beat.
Received my backrest a week ago and just got around to putting it on my new 2018 Indian Chieftain Limited yesterday. It was harder to remove my seat from the bike than mounting the backrest hardware, which, by the way, was so easy! Will be riding tomorrow to try it out. This is my second Grasshopper backrest (had one on my 2005 Honda VTX1300R) and would highly recommend it for a great substitute for the expensive OEM model. AND, I am a woman rider and put this on my bike myself. Easy peasy!!!
