Making Highway pegs

Recommended Posts

Cut an old pair of bicycle handlebars and welded washers on one end. I used the original bolt. Strong enough for me to stand on. Each will hold my 185 pounds. I haven't cut them to length or painted them yet. The rubber grips I'm going to use are 4.75 inches. I could easily make them shorter. Any thoughts on the length. The turn signals stick out quite a bit more so they shouldn't get in the way of anything.
I've included a pic of the grip propped in place.

Nice, and they make great side/drop protection.
 
I'm going to have to look at adding something to my T-Rex setup. It should not be too difficult, but I'd like to have them fold up, and be lower than that by a few inches. The engine vibes are pretty intense bolted up right like that too. Does the rubber grip help dampen the vibes? Or your feet will be massaged while you ride I suppose.. :)
 
Nice job either way.

you might want to put a jack under the engine as its a mounting bolt, but the other three should hold it. It's an 8 mm allen bolt IIRC
