A back rest to save your back…no really

Gannet aka Kitezone Muriwai,

This how I make my buggy back rests .


  1. Tube clamp to the side rails with a 25mm O/D stub welded to it.
  2. 22mm John Guest Speedfit plastic pipe inside it.
  3. Some 25mm high pressure rubber fuel hose over the outside.
  4. Then the standed padding over the lot.
  5. It’s strong and flexible, but will pop off in a roll over or hard hit.

I’m sharing this system so our sport gets a little safer, it might just save somebodies spine one day
