YAMAHA CHOPPER PROJECT

Trimmed and hooked up, including the brakelight switch harvested from the XS and attached to the brake pushrod.
I dig the symmetry and simplicity.

I'm not sure what I'll do for grip on the pegs, either hockey tape or find a pair of rubber handgrips for 1 inch handlebars to slide on.

The 1/2" bolt that holds the peg on also acts as the pivot point for the foot levers. I cut a simple aluminum bushing (round tube, 1/2" internal diameter) for the lever to rotate on, and the important part is that it keeps a gap between the two halves of the peg just barely wider than the lever, so the lever can spin freely without binding.
