Focus: Footpegs


Pegs are one of those motorcycle parts that are often overlooked, over-decorated, or both. Being one of the few parts you actually touch while riding makes their design rather important. We've seen some shady set-ups built out of everything imaginable, and seen other guys run without pegs entirely. The coolest thing about the lowly foot rest might be that it's one of the easiest parts to build or modify. Anyone with an afternoon, a grinder and a drill can make a decent set or modify an existing pair. Here's a photo collection from a few events to stir up some inspiration.

The last ones (bottom right) are awesome. Simple and well executed.

Anyone got decent pictures of dirtbike pegs on chops?

I really dig those "WWII bandage" pegs; they just need a little blood. Yah, caps are gone on those Eastern pedals. Been dragging them too much I guess. I had to grind the nubbies off the left one so I can slide back and forth to shift.

Got some brass inlaid yamaha pegs of unknown origin for my mates SR500 build, gonna look sweet. I really like the pegs you often see on Japanese bikes, the ones with the indicators on the ends. Super clean, super stylish.

I'm new to a lot of this stuff, love seeing the little stuff being made. Be cool!

I'm also looking to run some dirtbike pegs on my bike and would love to see some setups.

I especially like the chrome plated railroad spikes.

I think the Rouser style mx pegs are pretty sweet, cant beleive they didnt make the line up.

Surprised to not see any of those stunt bicycle stand-up pegs
(i don't know what they're really called) They can also be used
the same way sportbike sliders are used--crash protection for
the bike.

I second the chromed spikes,

Commented on 1-20-2011 At 08:59 am

yeah, the bandage was cool

Nice shots its all in the details...i scored a "lot" of old mixed pegs on ebay awhile back, like 8 pegs for $20, there were even a couple Andersons in there!

knurled brass looks nice. it seems some of us expected a little bit more "imagination". me thinks we have werk to do then.

Commented on 1-22-2011 At 06:24 pm

I take the German ones ;-)

Commented on 1-22-2011 At 08:24 pm

The pegs are easy, the things doing my head in is how to mount them nicely!

I've used the railroad spike pegs in the past. They work great, look great and stand up to passing trains but like most solid metal pegs they transmit lots of vibration.

That said, the vibration isn't so bad that I might not use them again as I've several old spikes out in the shop.
