It was also called the “sister bar”, the “stick shift” or the “passenger backrest.” The sissy bar was just waiting for a triumphant return as the “necessary” accessory to offer back support to your traveling lady or as the anchor point for your helmet(s), backpack, sleeping bag, blanket, camping gear, etc… And I must say that the brand new version of the sissy bar offered by Burly Brand is quite cool looking by itself, even when you have nobody to transport and nothing to carry.
The Burly sissy bar is a one-piece construction eschewing the ugly square tubes-complex mounts-tacky studded backrests, for a simple and classic look that mounts up in 20 minutes without cheapening up your bike. TIG welded here in the good old USA, Burly is building their Sissy Bar in a short as well as a tall version that includes a compact pad.
One piece sissy bar mounts to outside of fender rails for simple install and removal and includes the hardware to do it right. Black powder coated and available for 2004 – 2014 Sportster applications with more on the way. Check out the Burly Brand Website or contact your local dealer to get yours.
