DIy Cheap Highway pegs

I wanted a set of high pegs But did not want to spend a lot of moey here is what I came up with.
Cheap foot pegs from local shop $10
2 small pieces of scrap steel 1" x 1/4" x mayb3 10" Free
4 ubolts from local hard ware store $6
Spay paint what I could find in the shop Free

Here is what I came up with. They tuck out of the way nicely when not in use.

I was not sure of what height I wanted the pegs at. So I left the bracket long.
this is why they stick out the bottom of the crash bar. Work still in progress

Looks good so far. You're gonna trim down the excess and paint them right? I need to get around to getting some of these mounted up. I kept the passenger pegs off my Vulcan when I sold it and was thinking about mounting them similar to what you did. Thanks for the visual.

Funny thing as they are painted a silver metallic
and the extra hanging down is if I want to try a lower peg position which I might try next week. I have long legs and the position there in right now are still a little tight in the leg room.

I put those same pegs on to Speedy's peg mounts, they work great and make long rides so much better. Nice job on your DIY!

Always trust your cape.
