Did anyone start making those buggy backrests again or does someone have one to sell.

Are you talking about the Spring Back made by Moran years ago?

I had one break a year or so back and was looking to find a replacement. I never did find one and had to steal one from a buggy I used for a trailer.

Not sure what the spring back looks like but the ones I saw were just an arch with a nice blue pad. Someone will throw a pic up for us.

I don't think Kent is still making them, but just in case...

here is a spring back. a piece of cutting board and some webbing and you set.

i changed it up a little and used a piece of 3/4 pex and some webbing and some fence clamps

Yep the one from Kent, thats what im after. I like the other ideas but the less strapping i have to strangle myself with the better off i am.

We will be making them again once my fab shop gets back up and running. We have had some major delays but hopefully we can things rolling soon.
