From Preliminary work, they fit pre-94's just fine.  Pictures and info coming soon.

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.
...and a good time was had by all.

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..

YoDoc, do you have any specific questions that I might be able to answer?  I will try to get some pics taken in the next few days.  We are swamped at work so I cant promise anything.  It might not happen until the weekend.
I am probably the worlds worst salesman; I still have version .1 VC's on my '02 and I have Millerized pegs on the '86.  The Millerized pegs will more than likely stay on the '86 out of respect for the builder.
Let me know if there is anything I can do for you.

Ok, its the center stand, they function great, I have taken her pretty far over with these on and if they hit the ground the pegs fold up the way they are supposed to.  If Snarf doesn't beat me to it I'll take some pictures while out today and post them tonight.

I'm just wanting to see where the legs go in regards to the foot scoops and the fairings, so I can get a better idea of the actual position of my legs when/if I bought these, vs. engine guards. Honestly, after this weekend though, I think I'm probably going to put off the highway pegs until I do murph's lowering pegs. My left knee is KILLING me, and most of my riding is around town/commuting anyway...

I'll tell ya what; I dont make very many things for other people that I am envious of.  This is one for the records.  I do believe that I am going to have to find some pegs from a GL 1500/1800 and move my pegs forward.
Damn these things look comfortable...
