Those, at least the ones I've seen, require a bracket under the factory luggage rack to attach to.

Thanks guys. Yes, I did get very very very lucky. No, I didn't also score an upgraded suspension system, but I will keep my eyes open for some, as I like to tinker. Plus, I have it apart at the moment in preparation for a full reseal. Typical rear main seal leak, and hope to do speigler lines while I'm at it. And anything else for that matter. I have a few months to get it ready for a buddy that is visiting. Want to make it safe and reliable for him.

Oh, and on that rear back rest.... I didn't see any markings, but I assumed it was the one that was available from Pirates lair at some point. It does use a bracket that mounts under the rear tail/luggage rack. Not sure if its BMW's as mentioned, but very well could be. The material matches the seat.

Looks like the Pirates Lair.. too bad they dont make em any more. If you decide you dont want it, cannot use it.. I'm your huckleberry if you decide to get rid of it.. hint hint lol.

If not I'm gonna have to fabricate my own.. I hate doing fab work, it always is sturdy and works, it is never as clean as I want it.

That backrest looks like a Pirate's Lair setup.

Best,

But seriously, you stole that.. congrats. She's clean.. and also, seriously, who made the backrest?
The backrest on my 2001 KRS is by Corbin.
