82-1100 Interstate Footpegs

I'm trying to replace the floorboards on my 1100 Interstate and have purchased the footpegs at a good price ($30 total shpd).

Here's the problem:

On the right side footpeg bracket is a short stud (or peg) -- and one on the frame, as well -- that keeps the bracket away from the frame. (Pls see pic)

I'm considering cutting off the studs and bolting the bracket against the frame. However, there is nothing to keep the footpeg from turning when you step on it, except for the tightness of the bolt. Shouldn't the footpeg have more support than this?

And on the left side, there is one stud on the frame (only), which does not interfere with the bracket, but the same problem exists: Is it safe to rely on just the bolt and a lock-washer to hold it in place? Thanks.

If I remember correctly the peg bracket rests pin a pin to keep it from rotating

No, it is not okay to use the pegs without support. I can't imagine why you'd want to.

Those look wrong, especially the right one. Pretty sure neither one is for an 1100. No way they will stay in place with just friction.

With no God over the state, the state then becomes not the defender of liberty but the definer of liberty.

If I disagree with you it's simply because you're wrong.

1. Thanks for answering the question.

2. Because I had them in hand; they were a good price -- and I don't "want to" if they won't work; that's why I asked the question.

Thanks, Dave. I was afraid of that.

If the pegs are in good shape you might be able to turn a profit on them here.
