Since the day I owned my PA... the pedals were goofed up...and the the pedal cranshaft bent... I straightened it twice.. but it bent easier again just from pedaling.
I hate stuff that doesn't work right.. so once I figured out you can push start the PA easily enough... I just yanked the entire crankshaft and pedals... its been that way ever since.
But then there is only one place to put your feet... on the 'running boards'.
A couple days ago I cut a piece of 5/8ths OD steel tubing and slid it through... then drilled and stuck a 1/4 inch bolt thru to secure it.
Now.. I got "footpegs"... another place to put my feet.
Though... since they are rigid... its easy to bark yer shins and calfs on them... gotta watch that.
next is a set of higher front ones... "highway pegs'... the motorcycle riders call them
