I have floorboards made with Knifemaker's original plans, which are what his are based on. Big and comfortable and the two words that come to mind.

Thank you for the kind words. The floorboards were one of the best add ons you can do for comfort.

Got mine from KM but they are the same. Make all the difference. I could no longer go back to pegs. Best addition I made to the bike. Get them you won't be sorry and you'll understand why so many bikes today come with floor boards from the factory.

From a comfort standpoint, i can think of no better mod than adding these floorboards. I have loved them ever since I put them on. You cannot get these floorboards fast enough

go to Chadsbike.com and look at his Vn750 mods... when you look at the floorboards he has a way to order them at the bottom.
