can I replace floor boards with pegs ? gl1100

Postby TylerLee » Sun Mar 18, 2012 7:14 pm



Hi I did a search but didn't find the info I need...
I have a 1981 GL1100 that I am modifying. Can I replace the floor boards with pegs?

So far my project is looking good. I have it running. replaced so far - wiring harness, spark boosters (victims of a cig lighter the previous guy added). new battery.I cleaned the carbs. Front brake caliper seems frozen -- it moves but it's not right. I'm working on the pipes now. It seems the baffles are removed. too loud for my taste. I have read posts on here about using HD mufflers. Right now I am checking to see what parts of these are sound enough to reuse.

great forum THANKS

Your bike came from the factory with pegs not floorboards. I have a set here for sale. 8-)

RoadRogue or RBGERSON, do either of you still have and want to sell your front pegs? I am looking for a set.

Thanks. I am just looking for the fronts. Just to me clear, I am looking for the mounts and the pegs, not just the rubber pegs. I am looking to remove my floor boards and go back to just pegs.

If you can't find them anywhere else, they appear to still be available from Honda new. Might cost you $60 or so in total for all the various parts. That's what I did on my 1500 when I ditched the floor boards it came with.

They are still listed on sites like that, but not available. I have checked a few. Even the one you just linked to, when you add it to the cart it says "obsolete", but thanks. I have found a few on Ebay. Just figured I would check on here to see if anyone wanted rid of some before I messed with Ebay. People have them priced on there anywhere from $20 - $80 a peg.

Ah, sorry about that. A lot of the times it will tell you right on that listing page that the item is unavailable, I didn't try putting it in the cart to check it out.
