Has anyone mounted Hwy pegs from front downtube

On a gl1800? I just can't get satisfied with pegs mounted from the horizontal. i am guessing it would require about 8" arms and I haven't found any beyond 6".

Ideas?

Can you picture your currant set up and where you want to be ? You might be a candidate for the " Mick O Pegs ".

Are you talking about the vertical part of the engine guard?

I have considered mick O pegs. Just thought there might be a less expensive option.

And NREMTP, yes, the vertical part of the guard.

There should be a ton of aftermarket options for that mounting point. Just need the correct size for the down tubing (I think they are 3/4" but they could be 1"). Lots of cruisers use the down tubes of the frame or the larger engine guards (like HD).

Budoka, my clamps will fit the tube but my legs aren't long enough to reach the peg. I think an 8" arm would be perfect. The longest I have found are 6".

Do you know of any aftermarket makers of 8" arms for the highway peg?

Try mounting your setup on the horizontal bar, then you have several inches of adjustability (ie. like Ergo II/III, or Rivco).

Pd, that's where they are now. Sure is hard on the mounts and valve covers if he bike goes over. Additionally I was hoping for a little more ground clearance with the vertical mount.

I have Ergo IIIs on my horizontal guard bars and have dropped my bike a couple of times including once fully loaded for two-up touring. I did not damage anything on the bike either time. The Ergo IIIs also do not diminish your ground clearance as long as you take your feet off of them before a sharp turn. The boards/pegs/side stand will contact first.

I misunderstood your first message. I thought you had some mounted to the vertical part of the crash bar and didn't like them. I saw these mounted on the vertical tube on a GL1800 when riding a few weeks ago.

Only issue might be getting enough length for your particular inseam. Ergo III mounted on the horizontal part of the crash bar might be the answer as well as mic-o-pegs. I like the idea of mic-o-pegs and lots of folks swear by them, but I can't stand the look of them. They look like someone made them in their garage. I guess function is always better than looks, but they are ugly to me.
