Foot pegs and heel toe shifters

Post by Turkeyboy111 »



I have this heel toe shifter that was included with the bike but no way to mount it. I also don't have the original pegs. Any idea if this thing will mount to the stock bracket? If so, where could I find a '78 foot pegs offset?

I found they were more trouble than they were worth.

Same advice here. I bought a set new. Used them 2 weeks and sold them.

+1 on the heel-toe shifter. First thing I removed when I bought my last two restorations along with the floorboards. They made it hard to access controls at times especially in situations where I needed them quickly. Others may have a different opinion.
