Do you or can you find a box of some sort to put it in
That should work
I took the one I had off my 75 for another bike and it's nice to have one just to hang a backpack on to carry a rain suit or another layer of clothes for spring and fall

Hi, just asked at ups , they said throw it in a box and ship is about $155ish, sending things now cost more per size and shape than weight. It did sell for $45 in the mid 70’s, it says on specs page. But that’s over $100 more than I would have thought. Probably better to give away locally.

I'd wrap it in bubble wrap and packing tape and send it on it's way. That's how I ship handlebars sissybars and such.... Should be less than $40 UPS if you send it that way.

Just looked at the instructions pic.... says it's for an XS650SG. The SG is an '80 Special with the alloy grab bar.
I'm thinkin' that won't fit your '75 Mikey.

^True, it's for the models that will take an alloy grab bar. I have two identical to it. I know earlier sissy bars won't fit this bike, so I assume the reverse is true. Mint ones like the OP's are about $50 on ebay, so jump.

One of the gotchas of XS650 sissy bar shopping is which ones will fit which years. I got bit at least once, maybe twice.

I received a full sized aluminum fender once, USPS, wrapped in plastic wrap, no bubble wrap, just a little cardboard support on the inside of the fender. I thought, Oh no! It was just fine.

Yeah the 75 and 78 swapped back and forth
I guess I'll pass and let someone else have it

I wrapped one just like this with cardboard and packing tape (wish I saved the pic) and shipped it UPS Ground to Mi. for $14.00. The package was 32 x 15 X 3 and weighed 6 lbs. with PirateShip.

Mikey I have a couple on the shelf. They might be a little rusty but it won’t be near the cost as one shipped from CA.
