Not many bolt-on options for our bikes, unfortunately.

You might be able to get some "universal" style floorboards and make them fit with some modification and the right hardware, but otherwise check out Knifemaker's designs for his floorboards. You'll need to fabricate them or get a metalworker to do so for you if you decide to go that route

Knifemaker's plans are great! I had a friend fabricate a pair for me. He used aircraft aluminum, and they are super strong. I didn't glue down any rubber on the topside, but gave it a couple light coats of spray-on truck bed liner. I don't want to speak for my buddy, but if you decide you'd like a pair of Knifemaker's design I can ask if he'd be willing to make another set. Not sure what he'd charge. I'm sorry I don't have any pictures of them installed, but here's a picture from when I got them in the mail.

Hey yes! If you wouldn't mind asking him if he would be willing and his price? That would be swell! I don't have any metal worker buddies to ask myself. =)
