I doubt the early frames ever had folding pegs, look in the parts book for the years the folding pegs fit.|
If you are to put the solid pegs back on the bike Duane of Taylor Classics makes a replacement peg mount. I welded one if his new peg mounts on my 48. The plumping leveling and aligning the pegs to the frame was a project but do-able with a carpenters level, a ridged ply table, 1X2s, sheetrock screws and string-lines,. Mine took an afternoon.

I have a frame that has a coil mount hanging from top bar; this should denote that it is a 1948-49 frame. This frame however has folding footpegs--the welding looks a little amatuerish. My question is--did any 48-49 frames have folding footpegs or has someone modified it. I need an expert opinion on this before I continue with this bike. I have another butchered frame that has the rigid footpegs that I can make the correction with if this is indeed modified. Thanks for your help and Hi to all I met at Eustis.
