Default Drivers back rest attachment.....?

Does any one have a pic they could post of where and how they are attaching the drivers back rest? Any brand is okay, in fact I'd like to see several.

No one? Come on'....I'm dying here.
I got a divers back rest in last night and I am at a complete loss as to how and where to install this thing. I know, simple right?...nope not here.

How about a pic of the underside of your stock seat and/or where your grab straps attach.
thanks

The Victory mount will accept both Victory and Mustang backrests.

This is the only picture I could find of the backrest and mount.

It sticks in that hole in the seat, where the strap comes up. There's not much to see.

Sorry, I don't have a pic, but if memory serves me, there are two screws under the seat that hold the factory strap down. Remove those 2 screws, remove the strap completely, and mount the backrest mount using the same screws and holes.

At least that's how the Utopia went in.

I have the grasshopper back rest, and that is exactly how mine mounted as well. Mounted bolted to those two bolts and then the backrest slides into the mount through the seat.

Now we are getting somewhere......Are these two bolts "in" the seat pan or a bracket attached somewhere else?

No, the two bolts attach the bracket to the bike itself, front part of the rear fender really. Nothing gets attached to the seat. It just sits over the bracket.
