    Rear grab bar

    Does anyone have a rear grab bar? My bike came with the factory back rest which I want to keep but when I'm not riding with my wife I want to swap out to the factory grab bar. Paint condition does not matter because I will powder coat it. PM me if you have one for a good price. Thanks
