I think I might just stay black, to match the other pegs... 

Anyone like the matched color or the black better??

The primary color of pegs has been black.  I have done a few in dark grey.  The ones that got the dark grey like them a lot.
Now, do you have a choice of blk? Flat, semi gloss, high gloss, or mirror blk?

I am interested in a set in Flat (Satin) Black.  I am also 6'0 with a 34" inseam so I guess from what I read you would recommend the regulars.  I run pearl nekked so there will be no mod  regardless.

Also I must have missed payment info.  I would like to get them asap as I have an ironbutt ride coming up before nationals. I will also pm you.

Some pictures and directions for Snarf's Highway pegs.

First remove the lower and side fairings. and the the lower heat shield.


Then remove the mid radiator frame bolt.


install the bolt for to replace the frame bolt, use a 9/16 box wrench.


Cut a hole in the lower shield, now you can cut out just what you need or cut a semi circle in the shield.


Install the plate at a nice downward angle making sure it's not too far down as to prevent it from going through the fairing.



Install the peg and replace the plastics.


More pictures with the pegs installed after a ride coming soon.

On a side note, Snarf told me and later I proved, the fairing can be slipped on over the pegs so they don't need to be removed when removing and installing the fairings.  This install was done on a 90 Connie.  As far as a review I love them, its great to get my legs out from behind the fairing and related heat.  And the color matches what I have done to the inner fairings.

Nice write up jet. You can also justify the pegs by telling your wife that they are 'saftey' lime green :P.

I thought that was just a bad flash of a camera, SNARF you shouldnt be allowed to make pegs so purty that color :)  Jk Jet if you inner fairings are that color I wanna see them.  On a sidenote, the pegs I got from you SNARF are really nice and I'm loving them.

Any chance of someone putting their bike on the side stand and getting a picture of some legs on the pegs? I'd really like to see how they actually function..
