    Default High pegs on newer sporty

    Long time reader, first time poster. I understand that Easyriders has a high peg kit, but at 400+ dollars it feels a little steep for me. I was looking to see if anyone has attempted to make high pegs? Would it be safe cut the mounts and make my own?

    Thank.

    Okay I'm drunk but i bought 10 dollar highway pegs off ebay meant for engine crash bars and slapped em on my frame. I could post pics if you're interested, they work really well I can stretch my legs high on my frame and I have pullback rabbit ear bars. very comfy...

    400 bucks to me means halfway to getting a hardtail frame or king and queen seat. that price is meant for fools and their money

    What year is the bike? If you are going to attempt making your own I would trying making an entirely new mount rather than cutting the existing ones. I stand on my pegs fairly often though to avoid the bike going up my ass over bumps. Pictures of what you are trying to achieve might help.

    He's talking about the high mid controls for a Sportster from Easy Riders Japan.

    $400 may seem steep for a couple brackets (without pegs) but you're also dealing with exchange rates and generally anything from Japan is going to run you a premium. I wouldn't modify the stock mounts personally. It would be easier to make your own from scratch if you're capable and probably look better than the ones Easy Riders sells (which look a little bland honestly). If you're not capable of making them yourself, a custom set wouldn't be any cheaper.

    You could make a set for much cheaper with basic tools using these as a guideline. coors light box templates to start obviously. hell, those are free.
