Post MADE zuma 125 HIGHWAY BARS CHEAP...
Ok, made a set like this for my 600w electric scooter so...why not the 125...
Went to the local Yamaha shop and went through their take off box...found lots of these peg sets in the box...they sold me a pair for $15.00..two pair for $20...had to add my own bolts and nuts and spacers....Went to the father in laws barn and dug out some 2 ½ , 3/16" flat steel...found a small length of 3" big enough to make two side plates...Then the rest was careful measuring and figuring, cutting, and pacing holes where they were needed...welded the two end plates on the cross piece and then started whittling away at the arc necessary to fit around the lower neck cover...that was time consuming..but...not hard...also ended up making a little notch for the battery box tab just in case...then..some rust treatment and a couple of coats of rustoleum flat black...
The only thing that I did't like was the way the two deck bolts had to go in at a bit of a forward angle..looked at pressing my metal floor plate to mach the angle but it was way to much figuring...so I used two ⅛" pieces of 3/16" black fuel hose to put under the bolt head washers...make it look better but the bolts are still cocked off to the back slightly...I guess I can live with it...
Total cost was about $25.00...and a day and a half of piddling...

I like that. The flat bar looks better then the tube the others have. Good work. :cheers:
