I recently purchased a copper stryker and just had my 600 mile service done today. I decided that i am going to add the short midnight backrest to mine. However, they seem to be on backorder everywhere unless your buying the quick release one. I wrestled with this for quite a bit but in the end i think the black one will look best. Good Luck on your decision.
I have a copper as well and went with the short quick release chrome and I think it looks good on the red. And I'm not a chrome freak usually I hate it. If you want to go with the black I would suggest painting the chrome pieces that are on the side of the rear fender black as well or it won't look right. My wife is 5'4 and she loves the short she preferred the height of it over the tall.
Thanks for the input guys. I ended up buying chrome, tall fixed backrest with chrome luggage rack. I went with the tall just in case I decide to upgrade the seat. I'll post pics once it arrives and I get it installed.
