I thought it was the clovis that was failing, which is the piece that attaches directly to the bike and to which the footpeg bracket attaches. When you get the new pegs, you get a bracket with holes that line up with the clovis holes and then you screw your pegs to that bracket.
It was a lay down. Bike was stripped of tank and carbs. Spark plugs pulled out and I was running up the street with it to pump out the mixture of WD40 and gasoline in the cylinders (cylinders had seized from from a stuck float dumping a bunch of gas in there).
Unfortunately I was on the wrong side of the bike considering the crown of the road. So when I stopped to catch my breath, the bike leaned over to the right and me being on the upper crown, I couldn't stop it from falling over. So yes, I did lay it down and I didn't crash.
