    I agree! And the sharp corners are never good.

    The guy I took my mc test with doesn't ride any more. I ran into him on a jobsite digging ditches with a limp. I asked him why, his calf was ripped off the bone by the stock foot peg (sport bike, the dipshit wore shorts) and they thought they'd have to amputate.
    I've also bent my stock highway footpegs adjusting myself, there's a lot of leverage in forwards.
    When I see a rider wearing shorts I can just visualize the knee hitting the pavement. Horrible.

If the metal is annealed, its nearly as soft and flexible as any other steel. That's critical to how they MAKE files - they use a chisel to "carve" the teeth in the annealed metal, then harden it.

    Accidental bending seems possible, as it would be for any other chunk of 1/4" thick bar stock. Hardening and tempering to spring-hardness could help there. Or he could just avoid putting his full weight on the tips of them.
    OR... He could just take them off and throw them in the garbage where they belong.

    The last 3 years I've been building a cafe racer, my intent is to build a real performer. But I want to do it in the flavour of the 60's bikes making and doing as much as I can mostly with a grinder and welder.
    Parts bought are budget pieces that I then modify for my purpose.
    Where possible I recycle parts and and try to make any new parts lighter than those removed so far reducing weight over 40 lbs.
    There are many parts I don't have pictures of everything and my camera skills suck.
    This is just a start.
    The headlight shroud was made from the offcut of the shortened front guard.

    To help the GO part of my SV650 cafe racer, I made a offset key to advance the standard timing 4 deg. made from a piece of 5mm steel and used a angle grinder, file. And while apart I used a friends lathe to lighten the flywheel and used roller skate bearings to balance it.
