NorCal Bike Parts ??

Do any of you have any experience with NorCal Bike Parts.
My son wants a sissy bar/backrest and luggage rack for his VLX600.
I'm suffering from sticker shock. I thought the Cobra price of $159.99 on BikeBandit was reasonable until I realized it was just for the luggage rack.
The sissy bar to which it attaches is over $300.


That would make the total about 1/3 of what I paid for the bike.


Amazon cheap Chinese ones have terrible reviews.


NorCal has the two pieces for $174. but I can't find info on manufacturer or any reviews.



Thanks in advance.

Thanks Swifty,


That's where I found NorCal. Theirs is less than half the price of Cobra and triple the price on Amazon.


Which is probably about right.

Need to get bike back together in time for Dragon weekend. So I've ordered from Norcal.

Parts arrived very quickly. Especially since I'm in Va and they're in Ca.


Very well made, HEAVY steel and chrome plating. Back rest is solidly attached to sissy bar. I mention this becasue reviews of cheaper ones comment on the cardboard backing of the back rest.



Looked perfect. BUT when we tried to put them on, the turn signals interfered with the brackets.


Drilled new holes to move the whole assembly forward about 3/4" and it works great. Unlike some others I've read reviews of these bolts don't hit fender or rear seat.


I've got pics that I can't get to load. But they're in the Gallery.
