Highway pegs fresh today....

I had wanted some for awhile and a few weeks ago our
dealer had a swap meet where I picked up a set of Harley
pegs for $4. The square tubing is 3/4"X22", 3/8" bolts
attach the pegs to the tubing, the U-bolts are 3/4".
here are the photo's













They worked well on the way home from my buddy's shop ( he has
a nice milling machine), I disassembled them and am prepping to paint.
They could be made with a hacksaw and a drill pretty easy.

Ride while you can

with a little more work you can mount some driving lights on the same tube

Didn't someone else do this once and found out that the front tire can hit the bar?

Thanks prim8, you raised a valid point. I set the bike up
and ratcheted the front down as far as I could. The way
that I have it attached causes no problem.



Thanks again.

final instalation





They're very solid and I can move them in or out with my toe.
My old knee's need a change in position and these do the job.

Yes, that was me. It seems however that the OP's setup is much closer to the radiator and also higher up so I reckon it should be ok for normal street riding without the big potholes we have here in Thailand
