Default Backrest for the granddaughter.

Took the granddaughter for a ride on the bike and she loved it. But she said a backrest would be nice. Couldn’t justify paying the money they want for one so I made one myself. Some scrap material I had cutting torch welder and a black pad off eBay, under 25 bucks. Not counting the hours.

Looks great. Does anything besides gravity hold it in place on the back posts?

For now a pair of zip ties are holding it in place. Plan to make two pins to hold the back down.
