Drag Specialties: EZ Glide Motorcycle Backrest

Motorcycle Backrest

If you are looking for a taller pad on the backrest of your Drag Specialties seat with EZ Glide II applications, then we have what you are looking for.

The EZ Glide III Backrest Assembly was developed for just that purpose while it can also work in the passenger position on all Drag Specialties seats with dual-backrest applications.

For $199.95 (Drag Specialties), this backrest assembly has everything you could possibly want.

The motorcycle backrest (available for Harley-Davidson and other cruisers) pivots and will fold forward 2", a polished, nickel-chrome finish, zinc-plated hardware, a 14-gauge steel internal base plate pad, measures 10" W x 7 1/2" tall and includes a unique sewn-in zipper pouch on the rear of the pad.

To provide higher durability and a longer life over conventional leather or vinyl, our pad features solar-reflective leather in the contact area and automotive-grade vinyl on the sides. This patented process reduces surface temperature by as much as 25ºF for a cooler backrest which extends the life of the pad. Made in the U.S.A.
