Hi everyone. I finally got my lovely VT700 to run. I'm having a hard time to find a sissy bar for it based on some online searches I have done. Haven't been to any store yet. Would you be able to recommend a particular sissy bar (preferably with a luggage rack)? Thanks for any help.

The older bikes came from the factory with limited options and I don't believe a sissy bar with rack was one of them. There wasn't a lot of aftermarket add-ons available at the time either. Depending on how handy you are, you're best bet is to either make one or know someone who can.

Unless you are good at fabrication, how wide does it need to be, bottom inside mounting point to mounting point?
I have a bare backrest (no pad) from a 96 1100 ACE.
Chrome is decent.
Best of all, if it works, will be easy to find an 1100 ACE luggage rack.

Plus it's cheeeeeep.
In my Sales thread.

PM me.

Since it's Christmas & money is tight, whatcha got to swap?

I agree; I guess I can't just buy the right one.
I am pretty handy. I will make some measurement and see if I can find something close and then will start modifying. If not, I will start from scratch.
Thanks.

Get some width measurements.
If it's CLOSE to this one: Merry Christmas.
Will need your address.

The early shadow had a funky cast metal, made to fit type sissy bar. None of the newer 2 bolt with side stays will fit, I don't believe.
