While traveling through a construction zone yesterday, the truck in front of me struck a couple of the skinny traffic cones (we call them candlesticks in construction).
Well, the 7 pound black placement ring that holds these things in place came flying at me (we were all doing 45 mph per construction zone speed on the interstate).
I dodged best I could, avoiding a direct hit, but the disc slammed squarely into my right foot and peg/brake pedal. I'm fine, just felt like a punch to the leg. However, my bike didn't fare so well.
My right peg assembly bent back about 20 degrees and it broke the pivot point on my brake pedal. I can't disassemble until this weekend as I've gotta work this week here in Montana and won't get home for a couple days. I get to ride with just front brakes.
Anyone have spare factory parts for the right peg/ brake assembly from an 1800C or an 1800F? I don't know what all is broken yet, if it's the mounting brackets, master cylinder bracket, or the pivot bolt for the brake pedal.
2007 VTX 1800 F Spec 3 - Mustang Seats, Cobra Angled Slashcuts, House of Kolor Blueberry Pearl paint and custom tank badge, lots of chrome, lots of sanding and polishing on the aluminum!
