I just took mine off of my son's bike. He's a sophmore now and never rides that bike.

Bringing this thread back from the dead. I had an idear(probablly not the first). How bout attaching another eye bolt at 90 degrees, wrapped in hose or something non abrasive to the pain, to rest against the hinge. Kinda like a "quick release". Although you stick shifters might need a little mod to keep it from swinging back into the door opening.

Does this stay in that position from the torquing down on the hinge? Has anyone added anything to brace it?

Hello dead thread, lol.

I keep em in place with torque. They don't crush the nylon sleeve and stay off the metal. If I were to hit something, my foot would push it forward and slip off, or if it hit something it would fold back, but it stays put otherwise. It is important to have a flat washer at the top and bottom of the hinge to make it work best.

What prevents the foot pegs from turning when you step on them?

Aargh! Now I see the reply about torque. Doesn't seem like that would be enough, but okay.

Where did the foot pegs come from. All ones I've found aren't that cheap

As far as them turning. I used an interference lock nut on bottom that has a small taper on it this pulls into the bushing a bit and help to keep it in place. Keep in mind this is a foot rest and not a step. If you put enough pressure on it with your foot you could bend the hing. Allowing the peg to move under pressure could act as a safety.

Now that I see this old thread again ... has anybody figured out how install a set of ape hangers to go with the foot pegs?
