I got ya'll. I guess my thought process in my mind was this was less work than plating and boxing in an area of the frame. Its so old and crusty it has some sketchiness in the rust department to a degree. Plus I had all the stuff already laying in the shop. I like using scrap metal.

Hey man as someone else said, that bracket that you made using the bosses triangulated with the round stock is very trick but made from aluminum it would be of the hook just from the weight savings alone!  Keep up the good work, I am so impressed with this project :)

Well I'm about 95% done on the rear sets. I have a little buttoning up to do. I went through about 4 revisions on the mounts but finally came up with something that is a bit more hidden, fits right, and brings them in as close as I'm going to get.

I follow what you're saying, but I guess I'm just not totally on board with a plate/tab setup. That was my idea and plan with the cardboard template originally, but I had changed my mind.

 My aluminum jig could bolt right onto the frame and do what you're saying, but I just liked the idea of a bracket moreso. Its solid as a rock this way, I have my doubts even a 1/4 in plate would be more sturdy especially with vibrations and side load over time, but never know. I have to keep remembering I'm not riding this thing off road and certain components will not get near the beating I am use to. I really like how the bracket looks. I had figured in my head while I was building it, to go behind the busa rear set, but I like the look and design so much after finishing I want to figure out how to get it on the outside, basically.


(Already had this in SmugMug)


(Old piece of plate I had cut for the mount when I was thinking plate, too)

Genuinely dig the fab work involved... But Mr. Goat I think we went a little overboard  ::) Don't go changing things on my part however I think what the other really smart dude was saying is you may have created more mass than need to complete the task.

Maybe just by simply doing a little notch cut and bung weld in your pegs would bolt right up much the same as the o-originals. Using the peg mount as a weld fixture mount you may have been able to both layout the cuts and weld in the bungs. Then shave off the old taps/mounts

Not nearly as nice yours but a whores example here:

Figured I'd pop-in and say I have not passed away ;)

Time has been sparse but I have finished the foot pegs and the mounting of them. Had to trim the sub frame tubes out of the way a bit, so I have to splice in some new tubing for that and also make my shifter linkage functional. I take a week in June every year out of state, so I suspect it'll be middle of July or so before I really get some time to work on this beast again.

Well guys I'm finally getting caught back up on some of my other stuff so I can tinker on this project a bit. I ordered some meats for the wheels finally. Be here in about a week or so. I wound up getting the cheapo Shinko Ravens, but the reviews are good. I figured there wasn't much sense spending $400 on a "good" set of tires until I had some seat time on the thing and made sure it did what I wanted it to do, anyhow.
