"Toy bike" mod

When I was at the dealers before I purchased my new bike I remember looking at the nut/ washer/thingy which is "cast in" to the injection moulded plastic cover each side over the foot pegs and thinking it looked like something off a kids toy bike, so I have covered it up with my own plastic thingy cut from a bit of 2mm plastic I found "in the shed" and held in with heavy duty double sided tape. Not a ground breaking tip but IMHO it looks better.

Looks good. That always did look kinda cheesy.

Integrity is doing the right thing, even if nobody is watching.

I like it. I had to go out and look at my bike thinking "what thingy?" but now that I know what you're referring to, I can see how some might want to cover it up. I grew up with Transformers and Anime so I kinda like it. Regardless...

Great job!
