BOTM Winner, August 2016
I just bought a 2009 Vulcan and I already started to add things to it. My wife hated the small foot pegs so I looked for oem and after market floorboards but was shocked at the price. I made my own for around 50 bucks. I went to metal supermarkets 18 dollars and bought 2 pieces of 1/4" aluminium plate 4 x 10" . I also bought a 1" square bar stock and cut 2 pieces 5 -1/4" long. I cut the corners with my chop saw ( a carbide blade will cut aluminium ) and then rounded off the corners with a file. I took the square stock and rounded the ends to fit into the stock brackets. I then placed the flat plate onto the bar stock and rotated it until it was horizontal. Mark the holes for the pin from the original peg and drill the hole. Take the pieces to a qualified aluminium welder he charged me 20 buck and make sure you mark on what side of the square stock to weld the plate on so that it lines up with the holes you drilled to keep the footboard level. I glued a piece of rubber on the top plate and blacked out the bottom. I don't know how to post pics but send me your email and I will send pics.
