Found this stuff on triumph web site.
It says for the bobber...
but attaches to dresser bar.
looks like they would work mounted to the frame.
would have to be powder coated black and mount the pegs shown, to make me happy.

Is that the Triumph forward control in your picture? How easy are they to fit, is it just a few bolts or is it more involved. Thanks

oops!

Made by Wunderkind, I ordered them from A&J cycles.
Not real complicated to install, had to bleed the master cylinder.
They are machined with very tight tolerance which made the
pegs and fiber washers hard to fit. Also the brake side peg rubs
its mount and took the finish off (see pics).
With all this being said, The first ride with them I turned into a parking lot
and they rubbed the asphalt ,the stock pegs would not even come close.
At this rate I would grind the aluminum pegs off in a week.
I had to stop this , so I drilled and tapped the pegs and put the stock grinders
on the pegs.
I really like the controls but the few glitches has me bent out of shape.
The pegs grinding on the asphalt has to be addressed !

I ended up ordering the forward controls kit from Triumph. Sadly it’s still in backorder so I’m waiting patiently...

What do you think about your forward foot controls and riding? Is it comfortable or awkward?

Being I'm 6.1, they are very comfortable.
The sad part is they drag on an easy turn
and destroy the aluminum peg.
Hopefully Triumph did the R&d on their kit,
and included grinders on the end of the pegs.
