Highway Foot Pegs Without Crash Bar?

Hi All,
Looking for suggestions of highway foot pegs that work without crash/highway bars?
I took my Cobra HB off - didn't like how the bike handled with it, plus it was cramped with the forward controls (even though I've added an extension, and it functioned quite well - here is the post).
Considering I have forward controls, the frame mounted highway pegs need to be quite long and have an offset to make it comfortable to ride long distances.
Picture of my setup attached.

P.S. I found Rivco Ultimate Chrome 1-1/4″ Highway Mounts and Pegs, but they seem too short and stick straight out to the side. I need something tilted forward and down, so I could stretch my legs comfortable.

i seen them on ebay for $2xx.
I like them but are they for way up front?
they don't bolt to same location as floorboard?


I'm looking to get pegs instead of boards. I took off my highway bar/pegs. I'm short.


sounds like universal highway pegs mounted to the front frame rail heated up and bent would work for you. never seen premade tilted back stuff

I'm not sure I've got what you were saying 100%... but making my own would be an option, of course, if I had access to a garage with some power tools. I live in an apartment, and fabricating anything requires planning and asking a friend of a friend to use their garage, which is a pain in the behind (did that, really didn't work very well).

the ones pictured. they are forward controls not highway peg persay.
I want to do away with my floorboards and have pegs(less weight too)
and I seen them on ebay. now they I see they bolt way up front...I don't like that.


for your story. you said you want highway pegs without crash bar but tilted. you can buy universal ones from ebay for about $20-30 that clamp to the front vertical rail by the radiator. or anywhere for that matter they bolt to the tubing.
heres a page from jpcycles. loads of options(no affilation)

Your best bet is to get/swap a set of M50 pegs. I believe they are direct bolt-on to C50 frame.

Thank you for sending the link! Hopefully I'll be able to find something that works for me.
