So, in the last few weeks I went ahead with the crash bars so I could install highway pegs. I copied this idea from another members post about 2 years ago, so i cant take credit...but I love the setup either way. I've never posted pictures of my bike, so I am including them as well...the bike is pretty much in stock form with Drilled exhaust, Highway peg setup and lowered. The rear shocks were on the bike when I bought it and I'm not sure what brand they are...maybe someone could help?? Thanks...

That looks good lowered that much, but I would be very careful of the swing arm hitting the gas tank. This is a problem only on the Street Rod. Search here for more info. Also . . nice highway peg setup

I bought it lowered this much, and have not noticed the swingarm hitting the gas tank...nor was I aware of the problem...Ill have to make sure its not too close to doing so...if it were to hit the tank, I should feel it right??

Nice pegs BigBilly! Who makes them?
Also, it looks like they are mounted on the crash bar only a few inches away from the down tubes. Could you clamp them directly to the downtube and not have to have buy/install the crash bar? If not, what would prevent a person from doing so?
Thanks dude!

Those rear shocks are the stock 13 inchers from an A, B, or whatever other model that's not a street rod.

You would probably not feel your tire or swingarm hitting the fuel tank because it's plastic and there's a lot of momentum involved. Look for bruises and rub marks.

You can get Magnum clamps from J&P Cycles and put them on the down tubes. 1 1/2''

That R looks good, I like it..

Hey guys, just an FYI, you can install highway pegs without the engine gaurds. Go to Kuryakyn and get the Longhorn Offset Dually Highway Pegs with 1 1/2" Magnum Quick Clamps(item number 4574). Takes a little bit of patience and slight prying, but clamps can be put on without taking everything apart. Then the rest is tightening and adjusting!

Added FYI, I did hit the radiator fins slightly and knocked them in from being perfectly straight, but it doesn't seem to affect cooling at all.
