Markland Floorboards

Postby gregbrooks » Thu Aug 06, 2015 6:01 pm



when I bought my 1980 GL1100I, I got a set of Markland Driver Floorboards with no hardware. Any way to get hardware only? Or any ideas? The boards are in good shape, so I don't want to buy a new set, if I can help it.

What kind of hardware you tolding about. They should just bolt on to exiting bolts.

Welcome to the forum gregbrooks
It's been awhile since I've worked on the gl1100 Markland floorboards so I don't remember the way they mount. Markland is out of business so you can't get new other than the crap copy cat Saber cycle junk...stay away from buying anything from them, they have a very bad reputation with very poor customer service on problems.
You can get the bolts at a good hardware store. You might have to make your own plates(?) if there are any needed. Someone that has the Markland boards might be along and see this that can give you an idea to sizes and how they mount up if you don't have the instructions for them.
I see you are in Hampton, I have a cousin there. I'm in Milford for the summer then back to CA to finish my 83 Aspencade restoration.

I have a 1980 with marklands-I like them ok.
On both sides, mine needed a spacer on the rear mount between the floorboard and the frame. On the right side, the spacer is about 1/2". On the left side, it's about 1 1/2". Otherwise, they will be way crooked, and the heal-toe shifter won't line up. The front mount connects to the long bottom engine bolt, and the small "L" brackets slip on a exhaust stud held on with an additional nut (I don't like that part-you may need to unscrew the stud a little to have enough threads for the nut to go on), and the rear mounts to the holes where the drivers pegs are mounted (driver pegs must be removed, and new bolts are needed).
The factory engine bars are kinda in the way of your toes, especially if you wear big boots, but I chose to keep mine on. For the spacer in the left, I used a long nut that's used to hold threaded rod together, and screwed a bolt in each end. The bolts should be at least a grade 5-grade 8 is best. On the right side, I just used a nut that was a size larger than my bolt for a spacer.
There is a upper hole in the right side bracket to install a mini-footpeg to rest your heel on while applying the rear brake-it's a nice feature. I wish I could attach pictures.

Edit...Im using a smartphone-I can text and email pictures, but I can't get pics to upload to this site....it's prob operator era....

Ok...I think I sent you 3 pictures on your gmail. When I looked at my " sent" mail, the pics looked croped somewhat...IDK. if they don't show enough, I can send more.
.....oh by the way-I made the little foot peg from a handle grip off an old ratchet and a bolt and some nuts, so, it won't look like yours...

I have a new in the box set with instructions and a list of all hardware. A friend of mine will be installing them on my wing in a few days. I am not sure of the best way to get this info to you. I can text a pic of everything with my phone but not sure I can do much more.
