    I still have to do a little finish work on this.
    Other than some bolts and nuts, a used master cylinder and a new heim joint this all came out of the scrap pile

    Very cool! I was thinking of doing something like this to mine because it is a standerd foot pegs and exc. but they feel like they are to close to me for comfort.

    Well apparently it wasn't really junk, just stuff waiting for someone to realize it's potential...

    Thanks folks. :-)

    Before anything goes into the trash around here it gets stripped of all useful materials.
    Those brackets came out of trashed VW seats, the pipe from an old railing, the plate steel was from a scrap pile.

    My Grandfather would be proud of you RevBigJohn. His moto was "...if you need something, make it, make it over, make do, or do without"
