Default Drivers backrest

Has anyone added a drivers backrest to a seat that wasn't designed to have one? My seat is a Mustang Vintage seat without a backrest hole built in. I don't want to buy a new seat I want to modify this one if possible. Is there a kit? I can't seem to find one.

What about the Kuryakyn Backrest that doubles as a driver and passenger backrest? I used it as the drivers backrest until I got the wife on the bike, and then I had to get one for me.

I didn't see one for Victory's. Did I miss it?

That's not much more than what passenger backrests were going for when they were still available and not on sale.
