Where can I get a set of optional side rails and seat backs for a 1991, 13' Sport.

You could start by searching the oem section of the forum.

In fact, you could spend more than 5 minutes learning how the whole forum works and search & read past posts.

13, lighten up!
ponythingy, the OME section is one place to start but I think I read that the original MFG had stopped making the rails since BW has changed the 13 hull. They were very costly and IMHO not worth the cost. Side rails are a good item to have but I am not a fan of the rear seat back. If you can find the some of the original stand off's (they have about a 12degree offset) any tubing shop can bend a set of side rails. Also all bends on the 13/15 and the Montauk were the same radius. This means you can take a set of 15 rails and cut them down.
Hope this helps and welcome.

You can have these made up pretty simply yourself. You don't need a special fitting to get the inward lean (the 12 degree offset jameso mentions), you can accomplish this with standard 60 degree (or whatever the standard angled flange fitting angle is) and making the bends a few degrees less than called for. Then by rotating the flange slightly, you will get a rail that "leans" in a bit.
