PL Buggy backrest


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...
