PostSubject: highway pegs   Tue May 08, 2018 7:22 am

Hi chaps, is there anyone who has fitted highway pegs or something similar to their s/wing without cutting the body work. the reason i ask this is due to recent inflammation to the knee joint it gets uncomfortable and painful to ride after a relatively few miles even though i am on medication for this problem. Firstly i am not a fan of forward foot pegs but after a ride this weekend to Great Malvern and Worcester just taking my right leg of the footboards and putting it in forward position (straight legged) it was more comfortable to ride and relieved the pain and discomfort in a very short length of time enabling me to return back to the proper riding position very quickly with very little discomfort for quite a long length of time. I do all my own fabrications so if any body has any info or plans it world be very much appreciated. Please no opinions just information please. Thanks in advance. Pud.

Sorry to hear that your knees are knackered. But 'Welcome to the Club'. 

IIRC There have been several discussions here regarding "foot pegs". Dunno whether anyone fabricated a set which didn't require body panel modification though. Try entering "foot pegs" in the Search function. I sure you'll find something.

Hey bud, have a look at this thread, looks to be quite an easyish fabrication job (so long as time is not a premium for you) .... http://www.silverwing600.com/t1708-bolt-on-foot-peg-brackets-for-the-silverwing-are-coming-along?highlight=bolt+on

Thanks for the replies, i think i might have a look at the Bern reply and check out fitting something from under the floor mats, re Dennis B's idea (I hope he doesn't mind me nicking his idea) they seem to be in a similar position to what i need then weld a small bracket and bolt a set of folding foot pegs to that. This way would make them detachable and leave no unsightly holes. I will have a look at the possibilities tomorrow but i have a new trailer hitch to make first then a serious look at making the forward pegs. Hopefully the knees improve and i might not need them. Once again thank you. Pud.

You can look at the pictures in my album to see what I did for highway pegs.
They are through the plastic, but look nice.

I'm 6"1" and have arthritis in my knees and hips. I can stretch out my legs and ride comfortably like that. I had to trade my motorcycle for the Swing as I could not handle riding with my legs bent.
