MC Enterprises Floorboards for 1986 GL1200Aspencade

Postby NITROBANDIT » Mon Jul 04, 2016 8:04 pm



Anybody bought a set of the MC Enterprises drivers floorboards with the heel toe shifter yet? I am pondering getting a set but the price of $400 or more dollars is kind of a hard pill to swallow. Any thoughts?

MC you say? $400?

Sounded like the ones I removed not long after buying my '85 GL1200, went back to OEM pegs & Shifter.

Have you searched Ebay for GL1200 Floor Boards?

I just would like to know what the pros and cons are to them. What didn't you like about them?

Well ..... what I didn't like was when I went into a turn and that inside floor board would skid along the pavement and pivot inwards with my foot on it ..... not every turn, but almost any that were the slightest bit off camber especially ..... and I was worried about how easy it was to shift up by simply dropping the heel of my boot on the shifter. That was in 1995 and they've been in a box someplace downstairs, the chrome has surface rust and the shifter where it pivots needed work .... it was wobbly. I thought they were MC but probably are early Markland stuff.

I do have Add On Floor Boards on our Trike, but no leaning on it and I use my own toe shift, no heel & toe shifter. They came with shifter and brake pedal and I only paid $250 or so about 7-8 years ago? They are nicer made than what I took off the 1200.
