Cheap, Easy Mod for the Doors Off Guys (and Gals)
 
Cheap Harley Davidson rear passenger footpegs, (mine were spares, but they're cheap on ebay) and $1.34 of Lowe's hardware. Now cruisin' w/ the doors off is even more cool and comfy. :punk:

Now that's cool. I already have the harley mirror, i never thought about the pegs. Nice thinking! Are they the foldable ones.

05GT-O.C.D. 05-15-2009 07:12 PM

Dunno what you mean by foldable. They're stock Dyna/Sportster rear footpegs. Now, they can rotate in and out, but I have them locked down pretty tight so to fight the urge to rock the peg forwards and back and eventually loosen it up.

daanbc 05-15-2009 07:46 PM

The highway pegs fold up.

i don't hang my feet out the door, but if i did i guess this is a good foot peg, i have seen others but this looks better than them

I thought about that, but do they make them as big around as my bolts are? I've only seen them for smaller bolts. (?) Anywho, I stuck w/ this since my doors are basically off until November anyways. :)

thats funny because I was driving today with my foot out the door resting on the slider and was thinking about some sort of foot mount or peg and then I see your mod. Ill be stopping at the Harley dealer tomorrow to grab a pair. Good write up.

Damn that a good idea, I have some extra pegs in the garage. When I get back home after this business trip I am doing this.

Bignuke 05-16-2009 03:18 PM

This is a great idea! I love it.
Nice write up.

Ironman 05-16-2009 04:52 PM

Good idea. Thanks for sharing.

I just rest my foot on the hinge of the door. Call me crazy.

OK, you're crazy. :flipoff:

Bignuke 05-21-2009 11:17 PM

I loved the idea so I went on eBay bought 2 pegs for 6.45$ (plus shipping) and I can't wait until the weather is nice again! The pegs look just like yours too!

someone on here did this last summer or the one before with fold up pegs. I think its a super cool mod. wish I could have done it on mine before I got rid of it cause I never had the doors on in the summer.

SADCG09 05-22-2009 12:29 AM

I either rest my foot on the hinge, or just let it hang...I know I'm crazy:punk:

Anyone have any ideas for an arm rest for when I take the doors off?;)

jwells36 05-22-2009 08:44 AM

I like hanging my foot out the door but the wind blows my shorts up and my manties show.

Tube doors.


I used to put my feet on the hinge too, but I got tired of WD40 and rust stains on the backs of my shoes... that's what made me decide to do this mod. :)

A peg gifted to me to figure out how to put it on my heep. Think it is a Harley Peg but I'm not sure. It is a little big to fit into the door hinge I think.

Bignuke 05-25-2009 12:35 AM

Levisnoss, If you take the far right part of that peg off (the part without rubber) and you get an extended bolt, it should fit through just fine..

05GT-O.C.D. 05-25-2009 10:31 AM

+1 . Take off the bracket and just use the peg. Sweet. Looks like a Kuryakyn ISO peg. :)

jgano23 05-25-2009 11:23 AM

i made my peg out of stuff that was just laying around the shop on friday. i used a lance handle from a pressure washer wand, a 3.5" shoulder bolt, 3 flat washers, a lock washer, and a nut. total cost $0. if these things are not just laying around then the total cost would be about $7.

What could you make with a paper clip, bubble gum, and some duck tape?
