WTBuy or Build: Back rest



I want a back rest but not that high of one like a tall sissy bar back rest. Here is what I've found but don't want to blow $60. I'm saving up for a new 70cc for my new Jaguar. http://www.belizebike.com/english/backrest.html

Anyone have any ideas or prototypes lying around for sale? I may try to make something out of my old seat and some conduit.
easy with the back-rest thing...i personally like being able to bail-out if/when i need to.

i edited your subject to say "WTB", but do you want to keep this here or go into "general" and discuss making one?
I don't know what WTB means, Wanting to buy? Put it where you see if, it won't bother me. My brain is crankig away. I've still got the kids old bikes that they've out grown and might use the handle bar connectors to grab the frame, so this may work better in the other fourm.
You anticipate havig to flip back off the bike in the event of a crash?

I must admit, I will have to lay the bike over to get on. Nearly sprained the groin trying to kick a leg over the spout on my gas can on the cargo rack.

yes, if it's me or the bike, she's gonna be sacrificed. i figure to just stand up and let go if i have to.

edited again & moved to "general"
Thats got my sore backs attention. Wonder if there are any less expensive dealers or close to the same product around?
I want a back rest to lean back on while I cruise. I've switched handle bars onmy mtn bike from low and straight to high and curved do I dont have to ride like a hunch back. After about 5 miles on my daily lunch ride, I want to lean back and float back to work.
