PostSubject: Foot pegs   Wed Jul 17, 2013 8:05 pm

So I recently had a military move from Florida to California (a state of crazies to another state of more expensive crazies) and they shipped my bike on the moving truck with the rest of the household goods. They bent the everloving crap out of the left side foot peg and since I'm in the process of buying upgrades for the bike, I figure I might as well upgrade the pegs. Does anyone have any suggestions? I want to keep the bike somewhat minimalist but without sacrificing functionality or comfort. Floorboards are a no-go for me, just regular pegs. No highway bars, no flames or skulls. I want something that looks like it belongs on a simple cruiser but without looking stupid cheap. And yes, I am in the process of making the moving company pay for it since they were the ones that damaged it, but like everything dealing with the government, it's a long and overly complicated process. Thanks!

Hi Dan, American Jambo has some nice forward controls on his Marauder, you might want to consider those if someone else is paying

I've got extensions on the stock controls as I'm 6'2" (188cm for you folks using the metric system) and the stock controls were a bit too close. I can get the company to pay for a bit, but a full forward control system is probably going to be out of the question. I'm looking at maybe $200 USD or about 125 pounds. Yeah, I have no idea how to make the British pound symbol...

They're not jardines. Thay're made by Spaan. Jardines are like $750 and they move the pegs out another inch to an inch an a half farther than these.
