I agree, that does look a lot cleaner. Nice job. Would you take another pic of the flap with the backrest out. This may be above my skill grade, I would hate to butcher the seat, they're hard to get and spendy. Thanks
I think it looks great, very clean. You must have a steady hand. I am still waiting for my passenger backrest from the A-Team. I bought it in Oct. 2013 and still waiting for the call. I am also frustrated that some other accessories on the Indian website say "coming soon," such as leather grip wraps and such. I don't get it.

Your kit supposed to come with 3 screw M6 X 25mm long. The fourth screw will be the existing battery mount screw. You will need a 10mm socket torque wrench.
When you pop the seat off and are preparing to screw down the four bolts that anchor the backseat mount to the Vintage....what sort of wrench measurement are you to use? I've tried several and no metric or other measurement works...is this one of those "special" tools Indian speaks of for their bikes? If so, where can i buy them?
