Getting close to fitting my foot pegs. With my hard tail, lowered seat position and this 50 year old body, it cramps up my legs. I'm looking to lower my pegs. From what I can see during my mock up I'll have to reposition my brake lever and shifter too.. I'm thinking of welding a bushing on the lower hard tail leg and running the brake lever through there. Looking for ideas or ways you've solved the knee in the chin problem.

My first thought is (perhaps not the most desirable) a highway bar ?
This would give you another foot position,so you can stretch out a bit more on longer rides, without compromising the mid's. Just a thought
I think I've also seen (some damn where) "extended" mid's that are a bit longer than normal. the "kit" comes w/ extended brake & shifter arms as well (black powder coat w/ your choice of brass or SS pegs), and bolted up in the normal position. It wasn't cheap, & for the life of me I cant recall where in the hell I saw them at, but might be something other than a highway bar, forward controls, or trying to lower the pegs, to give ya a bit more leg room.

Well did some work today. I cut down the stock pegs, welded on a steel bung that was slotted to accept folding pegs. Got a nice pair of round foldable pegs mounted. I rotated the peg arms and repinned them so they seet about 2 1/2 inches lower. So far so good . Next on to the brake pedal. I'm trying to retain the stock pivot position.

Looks good Rob, just be careful leaning into the corners! I did something similar but cut the stock pegs completely off and welded some 9/16 bar to the peg base. Moved them forward a couple inches at the same time.

those look sweet. Im hoping Ill be all right when leaning, The pegs are sitting lower in the pics becaust the engine plates pivot downward without the engine in there.
