Is yours the kind that has the bracket on the side of the seat, then slides back and forth..? If so, I think it should be adaptable.
The seat I have on my '83 Apsencade is an INSERT in the center. (See photo).

I'm talking about for the passenger not the driver...I'm looking at removing the tour pack and replacing it with a backrest with a luggage rack such as the one in the picture provided

OOOOkay. I would think if you removed the tour pack, the bracket of the frame would attach to the same spot that the frame of the tour pack did. Shock bolt, isn't it..?
