Any suggestions on a cheap clamp mod?

So, I want to clamp some new-to-me foot pegs to my 1.25 inch crash bars. I need some clamps. Kuryakyn makes a nice set - with a rather hefty price. Before I dug into my wallet, wanted to see if anyone had any DIY mods for this purpose. Some of the stuff I had seen on this site, like homemade lowers and such, impresses the heck out of me.

Check your local hardware or home mprovement center for 1 1/4 "P" clamps. Can usually find them in the plumbing section. Probably get a bag of 6-10 clamps for about $7. Dont know if they would be stong enough if you put much pressure on them. Can make your own even by bending a piece of "1 by 1/8 flat bar stock, then drill bolt holes to the size you need.

I found Lowes/Home Depot had some nice ones, but only up to a certain size. If you need anything larger, I'd suggest checking out Marsh Fasteners. I got a back of 5 or 6 3" clamps with rubber padding for like $6 + shipping that I used for my lowers.
