Default HD pegs on a Vic XC

I really didn't want to shell out more $$ on a set of rear boards, especially since I have an almost new set of Kuryakyn SwingWings I took off my HD before trading it.
So I eyeballed, measured and test fit....I'm 99.9% sure I can make these pegs work. The eyelets on the board mount match up with the pin holes on the spine. What I won't be able to do is freely move the Swingwing up and down on the spine do to the spring loaded stay on the stock Vic pegs.
What I plan to do is remove the stock pin, then replace the peg with the Swingwing, a 1/2" spacer and a clevis pin. Then when I want to stow or deploy the Swingwing, its simply a matter of pulling the clevis pin and positioning the board.
Here's pics of the Swingwing on my HD, I'm going riding today but I'll post more when I get a chance to get this done.

If I understand what you are thinking of doing, wouldn't it be easier to get the Kuryakyn adapter for "metric" bikes?

Yep. They sell an adapter. I used them on a Jackpot I had so I could use the heel rest pegs I ran on various HD's.

I looked up the adapters and don't think they'll help. The issue isn't mounting the Swingwing, its making it "movable" on the Victory spine.
The spring loaded peg can "roll" over the edges of the spine from up to down....the Swingwing being solid can not move over the edges so it will be trapped either up or down.

am not sure what your asking but harley has whats called foot peg spring washer. This goes in where the mount goes and is like a ship to hold the peg up. All dealers have them. Instead of the pivot pin you might have to use a bolt.

Sorry I'm not making this more clear....I really don't know how else I can explain. Hopeful some pics will help
After today's ride, I just had to work on this. Getting the wires off the stock pins wasn't so bad and my setup will work, just need to get the right size spacer. I will post pics when its done.

Some of the confusion might be that I thought the factory peg was spring loaded, its not. The peg material is just spongy and can compress to roll over the edge over the spine, to lock up or down.


The SwingWing is solid and can not move over the edge. My solution was to use a removable clevis pin and spacer. Now to move the SwingWing up or down I have pull the pin, place the SwingWing in position and slide the pin back in. It is a little more work than just flipping the peg up but my wife LOVES the SwingWings and it saved me big money not having to purchase the Vic mini boards or something else.

go buy the foot peg mount springs use two per peg. They will hold the peg up and use a bolt to holt peg in place.

One of the replies above mentioned Kuryakan........also check out Witchdoctor's. He sells the Swing Wing with some type of attachment for Victory. Perhaps he could help you out.
