Default Re: second seat, foot pegs/highway bars, lighting kit?

thanks for the food for thought... that i'm not sure how the crank/pedals being free to spin will likely cause a problem. on my bike i would have to lean so far to the side to scrape the pedals i would probably lay the bike down.

i'm going to keep the pedals/crank. it would be impractical otherwise, at least for my stock gear ratio and the fact i will be pedaling (high foot traffic) about 0.5 mi / day.

i'm not sure if i weld pegs if it should be from the frame (wheel clearance side to side??) or just on the front fork. if anything i would think that this would enhance steering response, being about to steer or stabilize with my feet. thoughts?



(don't overthink the wheel clearances for position #2, i'd obviously not weld int he way of the side-to-side movement of the front wheel)
