I'm at a loss...I can't figure out how the right side rider's foot peg mounts.
The bike is a bitsa, being assembled from mostly B44 parts. The parts catalogue shows a lug similar to the one on the left. I have a B44 B frame in this configuration. My frame has a lug under the engine with a taper to accept the peg mount...but how? I know I've seen this before, perhaps on a B44 SS I built 25 years ago...
Guidance, parts numbers gladly accepted!
Tom

Post some pics of what you have plus the frame lug. They did change over the years.

Are you sure your orientation and terms are correct? The right side is pretty straightforward on these (if it is a B44R frame), it is the left side that is a reverse-threaded monstrosity. With a very special stud and toothed keeper that complicates a simple issue.

If you don't have a parts book to look at, you could go to www.bsaunitsingles.com and look at the spares manual for the B44R. It should show you what you need.

As Kommando sez, different components over the years, so earlier and later pegs won't play together...

I will post a pic tomorrow.
I do have a copy of the parts manual, what it shows it what I described in the original post.
Left is to the left as I sit on the bike...
Thanks for the insight!

My B44R has a through going bolt on one side and the stud arrangement on the other.

The images are a bit hard to see, but I think you'll get the idea.

The lug photo was too dark...the frame numbers are B44R 1844.
There is a B44R frame, number 2301, on eBay that has the foot peg set up as illustrated in the parts manual.
Larry-does the photo above look like the configuration on your bike?

I don't think that the lug should be pointing straight down if I am looking at that photo correctly.

Yep, appears the braze is broken on the lug ring and it has spun 90 degrees.

I just looked at a 69 Victor and it is just like Steve says, the lug appears to have spun down 90 degrees. You should be able to pull it back up for rebrazing or in a pinch drilling and pinning it.

Yup...a little gentle persuasion and an engine removal and it dropped to its intended position. I don't know how I never noticed it was loose. The oil line manifold kept it snug, but the engine has only been in it for a couple of months! I'm glad it is only loosely assembled, stripping should be quick. Now to find a brazier!
Thanks for the help!

AS Gordo mentioned, pinning it is fast, easy (no need to remove engine, just spin the lug to position), no need to re-paint... and is permanent. And invisible, if done right.

I've never seen this happen to a footpeg before, but I have fixed a couple spun B44 sidestands using pins... same idea.

What is the process to pin it?

Just drill a little hole or two and tap in small roll pins until flush.

Hmm. might get a bit "interesting" if the pin were to sheer when you are standing on the pegs and the lug rotated again! I would clean it up re braze.

Possible, if the pin was a finish nail. But a roll pin prevents shearing by design... and brazing does seem to have occasional problems.
