All in perfect order - just a little too low profile for my (fussy) passenger.

Fits well onto my Springfield, so it will go on the standard suite of 111s.  

It cost me just over $800, but happy to do a very good deal for anyone looking for this style.  

Can post more photos if needed...

Cheers,
John

That looks like a nice bit of kit. And it looks like the supports for the backrest are bolted to the frame. Can't you add in some extension pieces to raise the pad to a custom height?
Cheers, Kim.

Hmm, you raise a very good point. I will ask Zorro if they have (or can make) something that is taller. 

Thanks Kim.

I have remedied the problem with a low seat pad, just as @Dr.Shifty suggested, so this is now not for sale.  

I have a taller hoop and larger pad on the way, which all fits onto the same frame, so that I can now have both set ups. 

I quite like the idea of the choice, because the lower profile one looks much better (to me) and will work well for a more experienced passenger, while the larger one will give me peace of mind when joy riding the grand kids and wife.

Let the fun begin - and thanks for the prompt Doc.

Sounds good, I had a similar setup on an old Harley years ago.
Got the higher sissy bar for long travel & pillion but (as it removed from the mount sockets easily) had
a smaller sissy bar made.  The smaller bar was only slightly higher than my pillion seat, ideal as a "hand grab"
for a pillion when bopping around town.  Was ideal, two screws to remove & either bar was swapped over in
minutes. (didn't put a pad on the smaller one, didn't want a pillion getting Too comfortable!)  Your setup looks great! ðŸ‘ŒðŸ˜ŽðŸ‘

Just been looking at your setup again, I wondered if the after market pillion bars will slot into the Indian original mount kit.
Thinking that just buying the smaller sissy bar would be cheaper than factory if it did.

The new taller bar is just the hoop with a larger pad and it bolts straight onto the after market frame that I already have (replacing the small hoop and mini-pad). 

I think you are asking if a smaller after market hoop would fit onto an OEM frame mount kit - I don’t know. I don’t have a factory mount kit to try, but the after market manufacturer should be able to let you know.

Hey @Croc, I just had a quick look at the Indian Oz website and the construction is quite different.

The OEM sissy bar is a ‘one piece’ construction (hoop and frame fabricated together), whereas the Zorro version has a bolt on hoop to the frame (two piece).  

This allows the Zorro to be more flexible (various heights of hoops), but likely not as solid as the OEM.

That figures JP, thanks for that.  Will probably keep with the whole or nothing option.  The OEM pillion is great but
a bit of a hassle when you don't have one.  (stupid here keeps hitting the pad!)
Still, Yours is setup great, congrats!
