I'm doing a very slow motion fix up of my 85 K100 and the R/H footpeg bracket was missing a bolt and has a crack running up it which will eventually cause it to break in two.
Looking on eBay I see tons of left hand brackets but no right hand brackets.
Is this a common fault or do people just crash on the right a lot?

Will just the one at this link do, Steve, or are you holding out for a pair of rights to secure your future? The right side does seem the favorite for drops, judging from parts requests.

Thanks.
It just seems like an odd thing to have that casting crack the way it's doing.
I'm sure the missing bolt didn't help matters any.

You could try planing one from highly figured oak or lignum vitae, Steve. It could become a cottage industry.

Steve, I have one, from an 85 K100RT. Would sell it for half the price of that ebay listing. I think and mine is in slightly better cosmetic condition as well. PM if you are interested and we can arrange details.

The right ones are more prone to cracking due to the leverage of the brake lever when the bike takes a nap to the right.
