    The mounting points are already on the frame, they take the forward mounts on the custom models.

    What do you think about fitting some highway pegs where the forward controls would be? lets say i am cruising in 5th gear there is nothing me using these pegs for comfort when maintaining a constant speed?

    Cheers AL.

    There are companies selling highway pegs for Sportster's, but they're asking around £350 for them.I think that's far too expensive, £100 would be nearer the mark in my opinion.

    Crikey. It's never ending and the amount of choice makes it harder for me to make a decision. I also find there is such a range of prices for seemingly the "same product" that I am put off by the lower end of the range due to quality concerns yet the expensive stuff is expensive!

    Well mine are what you could consider "the lower end of the range" but I couldn't be more pleased with them. The only thing I'm not crazy about is the skull design on the foot rests. I was going to reuse the stock pegs, but these ones are 50% larger which feel alot better. I'll swap them out once I've found a pair that I like. I'm sure the ones from Harley themselves are superior, but they are also 4 times he cost. I doubt they are 4 times as well built. Like Gettin'onabit said, you have to work within what you can afford.

    I'm confident enough that these will be staying on that I'd be willing to sell the mid controls on if somebody was interested. Is there a market for second hand mid controls? Usually people are making the jump to forwards and not the other way around.

    Don't forget that with the Chinese forwards, there is a good chance that the underside lug of the brake pedal with need re-profiling so it doesn't foul on the stock heatshield of some models. Not hard to do, though, just aggravating.

    With what I know now about the components and how they fit and work etc etc, because I have access to machinery, I reckon I could design and make a set which would be stronger and less unsightly than either the HD or Chinese ones.

    But as I couldn't get on with the forwards, I ain't bothering.

    Mine sits VERY close but isn't fowling

    You may not have a need for them, but plenty others do. Maybe you could join in with Bluenose-1956's entrepreneur spirit and start a production line?
