Hi all. Are these adaptor brackets still available?

Bought the Bygdawg tip over bars. I prefer the rigidity of these over the gold wing with adapter plates thingy....

Do they get in the way of the pillion's heels?   They certainly look really good.   :thumb

They were around $400 AUD landed

Not cheap but prefer it as 1 piece and neat no mess about finish

Search "motorcycle foot peg lowering kit" on Google, you may find what you're looking for, or at least something you could "macgyver" to suit.

Yes, the peg lowering kits are for the rider's pegs, but an adaptation might be possible for the pillion.  I know Mrs Biggles isn't enchanted by the loss of 20mm of her footpegs surrendered to the tipover bars.

Chris loves the pillion footboards that I've fitted to the Beemer.

Not cheap, but these should do the job (although they might foul the crash bars):

Similarly, Helen finds these footboards more comfortable than the standard pegs.

Bought and sold so many things from OzSTOC members and others through the Forum, Gumtree, eBay and Facbook Market Place, don't remember now.

But my best recollection, I got 'em from an OzSTOC member who listed 'em on Gumtree, and I'm guessing he was in WA.  Probably doesn't matter, they were a custom made job, CNC machined from a solid block of alloy, and whilst they are a very professional looking piece of gear, the holes and threads don't exactly line-up precisely and fitting needed a little bit of force.

When I give up the ST, I'll consider removing some of the extras, eg. Russell Day Long saddle, the Delkevic pipes and these footboards, and making them available to Forum members.  Duncan has already put his hand up for the pipes, so he'll have the right of first refusal.  Likewise for you (if you're interested) for the footboards, ie. if you don't give up the ST before me.

Yep- put my thumbprint on them, but don't give up the ST soon just for me!    :rofl

I have such vivid negative memories of barking my shins on pushbike pedals that were the same design concept, that I have a strong aversion to those!   :eek

I know that type is common on off-road bikes, but ours are gentlemen's tourers.   :thumb
