Basic answer is yes, Markland is no longer in business, but you can still find some used or NOS items around.

I just hear about Markland Floorboards I wanted to see what they were about. I have a new set of Show Chrome Floorboards that I'm trying to put on.

Thank you all for the response.

I was able to score a used set of Markland highway boards and love them.
I had a knock off brand on before and these are much better.

They are no trouble at all to install.
The mounting bracket is two piece, so you slide one piece behind the engine guard and the other bolts to it.
I really like these because you are able to adjust the arm between the bracket and the board.

I've attached some pictures of them on the bike.

But, what does that have to do with the (Heel-/Toe shifter)???
Russell

Those who say it cannot be done should try not to interrupt those who are doing it.
