YJ1 Footpegs

One of the projects I needed to tackle on the YJ1 was a set of new footpegs. I had originally just made a straight set of pegs that bolted to the chassis. This straight bar ran under the xhaust and rear brake lever, and would touch the ground during moderate cornering.

As luck would have it, a set of stock pegs from a Honda Cub had the perfect "U" shape to tuck under the engine, but over the exhaust. All I had to do was weld on a couple tabs to bolt to the frame.

Not a ver exciting picture, but you can see how nicely the stock Honda piece fit. Now I just need to dig up a set of rubber pegs.
