custom highway pegs

Hello all,
I have found the solution to the endless search for highway pegs for our bikes! These highway pegs are slim line and foldable, fully CNC machined, and made specifically for the VN 750! This pair is made of mild steel and stainless hardware. All future sets are to be made of stainless complete and the pegs are chrome plated. Installation is super simple (takes 10 minutes). Simply remove the old engine mount bolts on one side, bolt on your highway peg with the new bolts, and tighten down. When you move to the exhaust side, you do have to remove the pipe and foot control bracket to get to the bolts. These are for sale for $60 a set shipped, that includes the foot pegs, brackets, and all needed hardware. I have a 30 inch inseam and they give me the perfect amount of stretch for long hauls. Please feel free to email me for requesting a set or questions. Thanks for checking these out!

I really like Woodydh's brackets, they are simple and elegant.

If you don't have a machine shop at your disposal, I noticed that Harley FXR or Dyna-glide highway brackets are about the same as Ccspinner's and go for $30-$40 on Ebay. I just picked up a chrome set for $37 with shipping (see here). It looks like I will have to drill new holes to match the frame mounts on the VN750.

Post pics when ya get em installed?

And CC ya might wanna remind us what you charge for yours. Nothing wrong with a little competition. Eventually I'll get around to hacking out my own. At this rate I can never sell the vulcan cause I'll have it too customized.

custom pegs

Thank you. When they are folded up they sit about 1 inch wider than the airboxes, and just below for height. I have a pic if interested. I had them painted black to help blend in with the frame.

Chad's site for the foot pegs is at http://www.chadsbike.com/highway_mounts.htm. I've taken Chad's bike out for a ride and can say that the highway mounts he sells fit my 30" inseam perfectly. I also found his floorboards to be comfortable as well.

If I ever get another VN750, these are two mods that I must have...

I have a 29 inch inseam and am guessing that these will work for me. I would like to order a set. How do I proceed?

Not sure if you are refering to woodydh`s or Ccspinner`s bracket.

woodydh`s last post on the forum is just over 2 years ago, but you could click on his name, then click on "send email" to see if he resonds.

Ccspinner is still active on the board and will likely see this post. You could also send him a PM or email.

lance 328 also makes a bracket based on Ccspinners design.

Note the Kuryakyn offset peg in lances pics. It can rotate around to accomodate various length of inseam and height from the road.
