How to fix up tired old footpegs for free

Well, free if you can tig weld and have som strips of 3mm stainless sheetmetal:p

Here is how I did it:

Beadblast paint off from the peg. Cut strips in matching size to footpeg.

Clamp them on.

Grind them with an anglegrinder to rough shape, finish with a coarse square file.

Beadblast them again to remove burrs.

Time for paint

Put them back on bike and enjoy those meatcleavers. Warning! Do not fall on this footpeg, it will hurt!
