Crazy Frank Fender is about the closest you can get without rebuild of rear end.
This red one with the tall sissy bar is a good example... https://au.pinterest.com/pin/5070772392 ... igate=true

Here's a post on building one... http://www.choppersaustralia.com/forum/ ... =60&t=8071

I have a couple part built for a shovel, that can be modified for a soft tail frame.

Other alternative is a suspension system I have patented that looks rigid, but is sprung and allows traditional set up of sissy bar. Still working out costs etc.

The Crazy Frank in the top link looks pretty good in my opinion.

Any help?
