I wish I had a "TIG" setup but I can't see investing the money for something I would have such Little use for, if I were in the fabrication business, I would definitely have a "TIG" welder.
My wire feed welder is set up for a gas bottle for shielded welding. I thought that was the MIG part. I weld without gas and use flux core wire. Imagine that, I've been MIG welding and didn't know it. I'd better update my resume. TIG would be nice, but I've watched my brother do it and it's a pain in the a** and very expensive. Would be nice for aluminum though. My welds still don't look as good as yours.

Looks or not - it's the functionality.
I'm hitting the dirt tomorrow at Ncahes for the recon - so I think I will try the passenger pegs as posted above for a short term fix.
Wore the M/X boots to work today to do some breaking -in - yeah - that won't work with the shift on the side off the boot thing. Missed 3 gears and that just isn't professional.

Enjoy

I'll make it look nice, and strong. Rough welds are why god created grinders.

The latest drawing.

This is the "Stosh" BMW GS Lowered Footpeg for big feet. Women everywhere will want one, a Stosh that is, not the pegs.

"new" footpegs

I just made a custom set of wide footpegs. I took my old stock pegs, cut off the footrest bit, and welded that to my Wunderlich lowered pegs. Doesn't look half bad, either.

This is oustanding,

Keep in mind that Luca is the size 15" guy. My boot is a normal 10.5" (44) - But The M/X boot just isn't comfortable on the shift lever and brake. I know they need a break in period - but I don't think that will be enough to make them work together ( can't we all just get a long? ) I have offset the stock pegs in the touratech months as someone suggested in this post and it is a BIG plus - but only a quick fix.

Lacy - you sure have put some thought and effort into this. I really appreciate it.

Enjoy

Big Thanks To Das Rider

Just got home a bit ago from the workshop of Lacey.
He did an outstanding job of of welding, grinding that the pegs are now lower and moved back. I no longer have to shift with the side of the boot and miss a gear or three. No more diving the right boot trying to find the brake

Just an outstanding job.

I will post pic's once I prime and paint so I can show off Lacey's work.

Major thanks , Lacey. My foot, ankle, shin thanks you.

MUCH APPRECIATED.

Stosh

Hopefully Cyco can get it - another great Luca idea.

I am looking for stock pegs for those of you that put on after market and the pegs are in a box somewhere - hint - hint -

Enjoy
