If one was available who would be interested? I'm looking to get one made and was wondering about the general level of interest.

The Ventura item looks like scaffolding, I'm after something a little easier on the eye.

I made a grabrail today out of 16mm mild steel tube but it ruined the looks of the tail so I hatched another plan. I moved the pillion seat strap from the from to the rear of the pillion seat swapping the bolts front to rear as the bolts that hold the strap are longer, I turned the strap through 45 degrees to the rear of the bike so the strap emerges behind the seat mounting posts.

Next stage was a road test with with Blondie on the back and the result; braking now meant she wasn't sitting on my shoulders. I'm happy, Blondie's happy, job done :) Oh and the best bit is that the strap tucks under the seat when riding solo, happy days.

I have done the same ..but shortened the strap and re drilled a new hole ...it started tight but after a couple of rides my Blondie lol ..has already stretched it ...she runs one hand behind one in front ...i also put some non slip rubber on the seat when she comes as i found she was slipping forward too much without it ..it seems too help :0
