It came off when riding i am guessing crap weld job or damage from being down. Thank for the advise.Hello Dennis, welcome to the VTXOA. Looks like someone cut off the peg holder. Search (google) for a peg with bracket that you can bolt on. The part on the frame has a small hole in it already. Another choice is to make a bracket and bolt it on so it works like the original or have it welded on. 1" x 1" x 1". Worst case you drill the hole for a 3/8" bolt and cover the bolt with a hose or the OEM rubber piece.
Sweet, i will look into getting the u channel, i have a hobby welder i picked up for messing around with but havent gotten to it do to other projects, my klr needs a new head, my 82 kawasaki needs a rebuild etc etc.Since you're close, I've got a welder if needed.
