I laid my Speedmaster down july 25th and it is almost finished being repaired. I'll definitely check the footpegs when i get it back. I might even machine some new ones just to be on the safe side. Looking at the pictures it appears the mount is made of steel so that shouldn't break. The Allen bolt that holds the brkt. to my frame is M10 and steel Allen bolts are grade 8 sae, metric 12.9 (i think). I haven't got my bike back yet and i can't ride anymore due to losing 4" of reach (elbow will never straighten out again) plus limited use /grip of my right hand. But i would like to make the bike safer for the new owner who buys it from me. Des

Unhappy sorry about your crash

Hi
Thats no good m8.
Are you never getting back in the saddle?
I checked your album, with your footpeg bracket relocation, looks good.
I,m leaning toward doing some thing similar on the T100, only I'll be moving mine forward a couple of inchs. Have to draw some thing up.
Any way, speedy recovery.

Thanks Dug, No I'm sorry to say I won't be able to ride again, 14 weeks since the accident and only slightly more use of the right hand. If i use a hammer it will slip out of my hand after 4or5 swings. I miss it already but i can't put my family through all the stress associated with it. My first wife died 11 yrs ago and they don't want to lose Dad. I have the foot peg brkts. on e bay. I can also make the brkts. go forward too, but they only fit Speedmasters & Americas.
