Installation of Buck's Touring Pegs
« on: May 27, 2018, 01:56:03 pm »
Guys, long story short I just received in the mail a complete set of Buck's touring pegs i bought used. However, I cannot find the installation instructions or a tutorial on how to do so. No, they are not available on his website.

Does any charitable soul have it handy and can share it with me? Thanks a million!

Jer ;)
Best,

I have a set, but i'm not where I can get at the instructions.

I'll look as soon as I can, but I'm betting somebody will beat me to it.

It LOOKS complicated, but surprisingly easy.   :great:

You'll love 'em.

Why not go right to the source, Larry is very accomodating, and would send it via an email for sure... just send him an email, or call him..
http://forum.cog-online.org/buck-sport-touring/website-address/msg622109/#msg622109

His email, and all his phone numbers are in the contact area of his website above....
Also, from here,
If you click on the "letter" icon, on the left, below his name in his post, it is a direct email, which he will answer pretty quick.., or even the "p/m" icon, but you will need to give him your email, and contact info in a p/m, as it goes thru this forums messeging system, not a direct email.

Best of luck..

Good idea MOB and Old Man, I just sent Larry an email, I hope he gets back to me.

However, I found out today that my shoulder is absolutely FUBAR after meeting the surgeon this AM (have been in an incredible amount of pain the last month); turns out I have a full 1.5 cm tear on my tendon + a possible infection in the joint, so I'm going in for emergency shoulder surgery tomorrow morning (in canada surgeries are usually programmed, so when they tell you they need to go in right away, it's a bit scary), so I won't be putting those pegs in for a while, at least until the shoulder is better.

Thanks again guys, and if any of you finds those instructions laying around somewhere, send 'em my way! :)
Best,

JD

Bummer... good luck with your surgery, I drop a note to Larry to get in touch with ya... I have his number on my cell phone... :rotflmao:
All good...
At least you have the uber awesome Canadian medical systems, here where I live, litterally in the "heart" of the best medecin in the USA
(Cleveland Ohio....) if I wanted to call someone on memorial day, for medicals, id get a machine... and even any other day, I wouldn't have a chance of a corrective action like you are looking at, till probably mid July....  and id be looking at $100k to correct it for certain..
(BTW, I have been living with shoulder issue same as yours for going on 4 years now... I won't let them cut me... I just use my other good arm to lift a glass, when needed....) :beerchug:

Best of luck, heal fast.

Thanks for the kind words. The manufacture of these pegs entailed anodizing, powder coating, CNC machining as well as steel components. I made them in batches of 12 sets, but the demand was such that they took nearly 6 months to sell them. I felt that owners had other options, especially if they wanted tip-over bars, to add footrests.

If there were enough interest, the pegs could be made again but I would need 12 orders to make them.  If you would like a set, please go to my website and complete the contact form. I will keep you posted on progress. If enough orders/commitments are received by 4/15, delivery would be in early June.
