New to me GL1100 Standard

My dad has graciously donated his trusty GL1100 to me. I've been playing around with restoring a '75 Z1 that spent the last decade in storage. The Z1 runs, but isn't exactly a smooth or practical machine.

In any event, my dad is getting an upgrade and I get his '83 GL1100 with just over 23K miles. Bike looks good and runs super smooth. I'm looking forward to it, though I doubt I do much off-road with this one!

Any tips on locating a passenger backrest for the GL1100 standard? I keep seeing them on bikes in pictures, but I've not had much luck finding one. The Mrs. really doesn't enjoy riding without a sissy bar.
