Anyone that did this mod? Any ideas on detachable pillion pegs instead?

Have NOT done the mode, (just searing thoughts)
 i did a lot of thinking, and searching here i had found a draw of someone(sorry can't remember the name) that he was also considering that, and he did this draw for cutting,
Thinking of a way to make them removable, and also ''replaceable'', i thought that a machined Alu part with holes for screws that could be inserted betwen the parts that had been cut, will do the work
As i told you that's just my thoughts that i didn't move on

n UK, I believe that if you have a dual seat you have to have pegs for the pillion if fitted at the factory as standard or it's an MOT failure, then again on the Gov website on the diagram of things to check it just points to the front ones.

This is true, my Sprint RS was recently failed because I had removed the pillion pegs for re-painting, luckily I was able to re-fit them for an MOT pass the same day.

It seems illogical to require rear pegs to be fitted, especially as theyre easily removable on the 900 and promoted as a feature. A lot of people pull them off their Street Triples and I removed them from my Street Scrambler. These all bolt off, and I guess it makes more sense theyd have a problem with you cutting the frame to do it.
@romanrick Funny you mention removing them on your Sprint RS for painting. I did the same thing with mine - painted them black.

Which is why Triumph did an official rear seat cowl (and for other models) to cover the passenger seat, for those effectively forming a cafe racer. I logically think the (UK) rule is to prevent passengers being carried with their feet flailing around and possibly into the rear wheel spokes.
Also owned my 1979 Bonnie T140E from new!
