What a deal!!!!

I have been wanting to install highway pegs on my bike since I got it, but don't like the typical engine guard that we can get for this bike. So, I was interested in getting a highway bar with pegs on either end to install, but everywhere I looked they ran around $150 or so for them, and I just wasn't ready to spend that for a bar...

But, with several road trips coming up I decided to look around on ebay and see what I found... And low and behold, I came across the perfect deal. Take a look at this, I can't believe I found it for what I got it for either... $4.99!!! What a deal... Around $150 everywhere I've looked and got it for $4.99!!! I've always loved ebay, but now I love it that much more. Will post pics when I get it in and installed.

That was my only question too... But, I've been given some pretty good ideas to work with, the primary being u-clamps... But, I'm wasn't so concerned with that problem because I know enough people that can help me rig or modify something.

Don't know if it will help you any, but here are some photos of the one I made myself:

Thanks knifemaker, that is awesome. Those look really good man. If I hadn't found these, I was planning on talking to a guy I know about trying create something like that. But, I am glad I found it and now to figure out how to install. I like that setup you have, but I can't say I'd know how to recreate it as awesome as you did.
