As I began contemplated fabricating a foot rest to replace one that's missing on my '37 model JF restoration, I realized that I should check whether anyone here might have one I could buy.

I've posted a photo of the one I have, at the following link:

The same footrest was used on both sides of the bike, and was also used on various models. Please let me know if you can help.

Many thanks,

I don't have one like that but I couldn't help but check the twin type foot rests from the 1950s/60s to see the similarity. I don't think the right one would work due to the way is quickly angles at a 45 degree from the mount boss. Of the left ones some have a question mark shape to clear the pipe and some less so (probably the siamese pipe style). These look like they could be heated and bent then trimmed a little and shaped a little to work. That is if you can get one. They are more plentifull than the one your looking for though. Just a thought.

Hitchcocks have some pre-war parts - have you run the part number through their online system ?

These are the first things that got mangled in a fall, so there may not be a whole lot of spare ones lying about. Or someone will have a bucketfull !!

Thanks gents. I tried Hitchcock's a while back, but it's worth a try once more.

The right side foot rest as used on twins would work on the old bike's right side, and would be easier to disguise ... but I would much prefer the real thing for this restoration.

I have the left side pegs from both the Siamese and the dual pipe systems, but they are both excellent so I did not want to mod them until I had exhausted my other options. So, back to Allan's for one more try ....

The part number of at least one variant of the pre war foot rest is 22873 ... I think that version has around shank where it goes into the rubber.

My original has an oval cross section, but I can't find a definite part number for it.

At any rate, it appears that Hitchcock's does not have stock on either of these.

Anyone out there happen to have one?
