Hi,
Is there such a thing as folding foot rests for T110 swinging arm bikes, I'm particularly interested in the LH side?

Cheers

...it's not really cast,otherwise when you try to straighten them they'd break...come to think of it,I've never seen a broken footrest?Anyone on here?

There are at least three different kinds of cast iron on a Triumph. The cylinder I think is called nodular, whatever the name is very brittle.
Footpegs are malleable iron, and can be bent quite a bit before they break. Then there is forged iron for the stands which is at least as tough as steel.

I wouldn't recommend trying to weld to footpegs unless the welder had a formal education in metallurgy and would guarantee his work. Most welders I know had only a shop class in high school.....

Cheers,

Bill

I am wondering brazing might be a better option?

I'm a big fan of brazing done well. Triumph did it all over your bike. Does anyone here have a tale of a sidestand lug breaking free at the joint? If done right using lots of surface area for the best adhesion, it can be stronger than welding. And it works using dissimilar metals, ie. cast iron plus steel, and even stainless steel.

Cheers,

Bill
