I'm looking for a passenger backrest with trunk combo.  Suggestions on where to find new, or any used offers are greatly appreciated.

There have been a few guys that used the trunk from a Honda Valkyrie Interstate.
It will give you the most "factory" appearing trunk, as it is a Honda part.
However, it may be a fairly expensive option.

The other source (and a lot less expensive) would be something like the Tsukayu (or similar), that appear to be fairly popular on eBay.

Thanks much!  Good advice.  So, on the Valkyrie model, should I look for the same year model as my T?  And where should I look for either one?  Sorry, I'm new to all this.

The trunk is the same on all years ('99 thru '01) of the Valkyrie Interstate.
There were three levels of Valkyrie (Standard, Tourer, and Interstate).
The only one that had a trunk was the Interstate.

Best place to find one of those trunks is on eBay.  I see several on there at the moment.  Not cheap though.

This is my set up.  Harley style trunk and my friend who rides with me loves the curve around backrest.

Looking at giving this a try.  Not "stock" by any means, and will have to be careful with it, but for the price I figure it's worth a try.  Can always send it back if I don't like it.  You drill holes in the bottom and mount to the luggage rack.
