Seven Fifty cafe-racer. Passenger footpegs. Part 2.

For those who read previous part it could seem that processes of cafe-racer footpegs  design and manufacturing were easy,  but as one may guess from complexity of system it was not so.  I started form drawings and models and after I found the way, I had to solve a question of how to do that all under the limitation of my garage resources.

But that was rather a pleasant experience, though it took quite a lot of time.

But let’s return to footpegs themselves. So, main parts was ready and I drilled the frame and then reply parts were welded to it. I only slightly grinded welding seams.

Then I adjusted all parts and worked out fixing system.

The testing of footpegs went in quite a funny way.

But sooner or later all parts were finished.

I temporary painted one of subframe tubes in black before photo shooting to give you idea how it will look when frame is painted.  Here you also may see a slider on which footpeg will slide when opening or closing, so no harm will be done for paint.

In final edition I used two springs one-in-one, it made footpeg work really smooth and neatly.  That’s how footpeg works, in pictures:

And in short video:

I made footpegs upper surface to be mostly parallel to the ground, so passenger would have no discomfort using them.

And a section of additional photos from different angles.
