    ATC 250R - Wider Footpegs

    After seeing many other members' trikes & their wider footpegs, either self-fabricated, or adapted from other bikes, and wanting a little bit more comfortable perches for my feet, I decided to fabricate some wider footpegs that will bolt on to my existing, stock footpegs for my '86 ATC 250R. I got a small sheet of 3/16" thick 5052 Aluminum and cut out my patterns. After carefully clamping them in a vice, and adding a little heat, they were bent into the traditional "footpeg" shapes.

    You did that in a vice? Impressive. What did you use to cut them out? I assume something cool that few of us have or even have access to....cnc? plasma?

    Thanks audio!

    Quite the contrary. I made up a pattern out of cardboard, traced the outline onto the aluminum sheet with a scribe, and then cut out the shapes with a Bosch saber saw. For all of the teeth on the footpegs, before I bent them up, I drilled a hole at the bottom of each tooth (15 holes on each side + 3 holes on the ends for a total of 33 holes on each footpeg). I made a little jig to guide me, so that the holes were evenly spaced. Then I used the saber saw again to cut each "V" down to the holes that I drilled.

    In that first pic, they way that I have them arranged, it kind of looks like a square sprocket, huh?

    Shorty, I don't know for sure. If 350X footpegs are identical to the 250R's, then yes, but I'm not familiar with the 350X footpegs.

    Thanks for the compliments guys. I'm not quite done yet. I still need to finalize the installation hardware & install them when I get back home, then I'll have some more pics. Unfortunately, since these as all of my custom parts, are handmade, so I have no way of quickly reproducing them, which prevents me from offering additional sets for sale. I wish I had the ability to quickly turn these things out via a cnc mill for everyone that's interested in them.

    I finally got around to finishing these up today. I'm using stainless steel bolts & coupling nuts, along with 1/2" zinc-coated, spacers on the outsides of the stock footpegs.

    Thanks Torker. I'll have to add these to the "most requested parts" list. I really wish there was a way for me to quickly reproduce these, and a few other fabricated goodies, but there isn't.

    Thanks ripper! I've got a few scratches on my hands & arms from those pegs already, just because I decided to wipe the bike down prior to a trip to the dunes.

    And, now the first ride report:

    These footpegs are way too grippy! I'm gonna need to dull down the teeth some before the next ride. They're so sharp that they're digging into my boot's soles, and chewing them up, which doesn't allow me to reposition my feet on the pegs very quickly, and I don't like that. I expected the aluminum to get worn & dulled down fairly quickly, but 3 days worth of riding later, and they're still sharp.

    See, they are NO good to you. They're out to get you...Send them to me. And build yourself some worn out ones. I just saved your boots, hands, arms... heck, even saved your life.
