1700 drive rs Backrest

looking for either the mounting bracket for a drivers backrest for a 2012 1700 or the whole backrest. I already have one from my wrecked bike so would like to find just the mounting bracket. The one I have is the slide in type with the metal bar being about an inch and a half wide. I have found many complete backrest but ty are all are over $300 Any ideas or suggestions

This may be a dumb question, but just to clarify - what type of seat do you have? stock seat or a custom seat?

Might be Grasshopper which are cheaper than $300- bike & seat type would help, look similar to this?

My seat is stock, maybe the strap was a USA thing, if stock s/n under seat is 53066/53066A. Grasshopper set detaches as you said, $85
