    I don't own a Magnum but have my sights set on one. I had just assumed that there would be sissybar options available for it, but from this post it sounds like that is not the case... And if you want one you need to make your own. Is that true?

    If you want the ugly stock backrest then you will have to remove the bag fillers. Or do what I did and go custom "GINZ CHOPPERS" sissy bar and leave the fillers, just had to trim the fillers so the brackets would fit, and drill a couple holes in the bag brackets. Look at my picture on page1. My wife leans back on it all day and says she's comfy.

    Do you have any pics with the mustang seat on the bike? How did it fit?

    when I bought my Magnum they offered an optional victory seat where the backrest is removable and can be used either for the driver or the passenger. It was an $800 Victory seat I believe.

    image.jpeg image.jpeg Hope this helps you out. Used a dremel and a jigsaw with some whiskey just in case I had some regret...

    Nice job! did the same to mine but didn't need to cut as much for my custom sissy bar mounts.

    You should draw up a couple of templates of this and post it for everyone. Try and scan it at exact size so when its printed it will come out right. I'm sure many people will greatly appreciate it.

    I will do that the next time I have to pull them off. An exact template would not work for all projects I would assume seeing how the width of the cuts varied by an 1/8" from one side to another.

    Thank you for sharing. This sounds exactly like what I'm looking for. Until I saw this, I was actually trying to create my own removable sissy bar back rest that would slip in between the fillers and hook onto the saddle bag brackets.

    Is this easy to remove, or more of a permanent addition? My wife does not ride much, but she needs something on the back. I looked on Ginz's website, but can't seem to find this product. Can you send me the link or give me the exact name? Thank you.

    resolaru, go on Ginz website and pick the style and height of the bar I have the Hardcore height. Then you need the mounting brackets for Victory, give them a call they are very helpful. Once you have it installed you wont even want to remove it! Looks bad ass!

    Thanks again. Your bike does look bad ass. Do you have a cushion that you put on the sissy bar for your rider?

    Also, on a different note - where did you get your lay down license plate from? It looks really good.

    Ginz makes pads for the sissy bar, my wife says it's better for her without it (thankfully) Looks better. Lay down plate is from Vic Baggers
