My new used Wing.

So, Just put cash down on a 91 1500 Special edition. Bike is ready to safety but missing a few lil pieces. Both rear antenna's are gone. The vent for the windshield is missing & a cover for a right side pocket at the back trunk is missing. Im also going to be hunting down some veal sturdy highway pegs. If anyone has these parts for sale or know a good place to order from, please let me know! Not sure if the pic's will show up in this post but I did try to attach them.

Mick-O-Pegs are the best IMO www.ridingiswonderful.com


but a bit more than others, they spring up and out of the way when you pull your foot back.

John, have you used the Mick-O-Pegs? They look a little scary, like you foot gets tangled.

Have they been used?


well, yes.... installed on my bike for almost 3 years now.
best money spent on my bike.
allows my legs to go down and forward to straighten out.


they are strong enough to stand on the pegs and lean into the back rest,
I do that to get rid of a cramp sometimes.


Nothing for the foot to get tangled into, your foot rests on top of the spring arm and peg. just pull your foot backwards a bit, and it springs up and out of the way.

I've used mic-o-pegs on both my 1500 & 1800 & have never even got close to getting "tangled up" in them. They are very comfortable & because of the position they spring up to high siding because a foot peg digs into the pavement is non-existent. You'll be dragging the riders pegs, exhaust & many other bike parts before you would get to the mic-o-pegs.
