    Just ship the whole bike to him.... he'll look after it from there. (Running joke....)

    70km was also a joke. (Apparently not choosing stand-up comedy was my profession was a good decision)

    I think I did the same thing or very close to what phelonius did. I had my father-in-law make two sets of these. I put one set on Mrs. Admirals TW and have the second modified set as a spare. I am using a set of wider-longer pegs I bought online many years ago (came from China). The Chinese ones are steel, bent up from hitting many rocks but still functional.

    Here's a picture of the homemade ones we have and what they look like. Others have made ones similar but are wider (front to rear as well as wide). I think it's easier to shift with the homemade ones we have than the store-bought ones since they are not as front-to-rear wide.

    I too modified the stock pegs. I have posted the pictures before but what the heck......welding looks bad but it is plenty strong.

    Before and after shot.

    I got mine at the same place. Had to drill one hole for the spring and do some grinding on them so they would actually pivot up but well worth the effort. Very nice for riding standing up.

    The thing that I don't understand is they mention that they will fit TW year 1981-2012...? TW came out in 1986, so why 1981, was there TW in other countries before 86? Also what's the difference between a 2012 and a 2017, foot peg wise??

    I modified my Krator pegs by grinding a radius and angling a cut on top of the Hinge part so they will rotate up all the way. If not modified they don't hinge very well. Also chamfer the end of the pins and they will go in easier. You may need to drill a hole in one peg for the spring. Some people just bend it. Do a search for Krator pegs I posted some pics on what I did. Ok here it is

    Edited for clarity:

    I have some good pics in the other thread about were to grind for max fold. POST#27. I used a 4 1/2" angle grinder but I think you could file them with a good file. A DREMEL would work too.

    Also mine went together way easier by grinding a small bevel on the end of the clevis pin.
