I've seen the vortex and it is nice. I don't need anything fancy. I just want something that will allow me to take off my rear pegs, to put them on only when the wife wants to ride (which is almost never). cbolton, if you got something I'm all ears, bro! I hope someone has something out there. Thanks

All the ones that I liked were more than I wanted to spend so I made my own. It was free and not to bad to do. All you need is a vise and saw. First I found a fab shop that was nice enough to donate a small peice of scrap alum. laying around. Then cut down to smaller size put in vise to bend and used the passenger peg to match the bends to. Once the bends are right lay the peg over the alum. to trace the shape and holes then cut on lines drill holes. Sand edges smooth and I powdercoated or you can paint.

That looks great. How thick and sturdy is it?

It's 3/16 very sturdy. A buddy has an after market that measured at 1/8 I went a little thicker for extra strength.
that looks really good. this is what I was going to attempt to do. I just havn't run accross the right piece of aluminum for free yet.

By the time you get the metal.Measure it. Cut it. Grind it. Sand it. Paint/powdercoat it would cost more than the NICE FINISHED SUPER light Vortex. Just sayin.
