Is your bike the VT1100 C2 ACE?

Brer Bill & I spent part of the afternoon @ Scootmods today.
They have both been ill w/ seasonal stuff, but I have never personally seen them be rude to anybody.

The reason I asked if your bike is the ACE version is: they have had my '96 ACE in their shop for the last few days, using it to develop forward controls.
By May 1, they will likely be able to produce some for sale.

After looking at a mockup of the controls, I may get two sets.

If so, I have a set of 4" Mapams that are like new (bought them from a member here) that I will be selling, if you don't wish to deal with Scootmods.

extensions

it's an 1100 C-I was just wondering if another set would work.It's strictly stock but when I put my feet on the pegs my knees are totally wrapped around the tank.I got bad hips and it seems they cramp up easily in the current configuration-don't want to have to take them off the pegs to pop them back into place all the time.I had an 83 750 and had the same problem.Nobody rides a 30 year old Shadow anymore?

I think you may have a hard time finding aftermarket parts for your bike. It's not that people aren't riding older Shadows anymore. I'd say there probably just isn't a huge demand for aftermarket parts for you bike. Even for my 1997 Shadow, I sometimes have to get creative with what I want to do and adapt parts from other bikes.

I'm sure forward controls can be done. But, you may need to do a bit of work to get a kit to fit.

Could you adapt this one to work? (Click image for link)

Depends on the distance between the bolt holes for the mounts. I might could use those on my Spirit 750, if the spacing is right. Are you selling them?

BTW, for OP, I saw some 'extensions', which are similar to these, on eBay for less than $40, which just extend the original pegs out further to the front. You might check on those, since it would save you some 'green'.

thanks for the responses-I have it at my bros house right now but plan on bringin it "home" within the next 2 weeks.When I do I will take some pics which will probably help with the search as I will be able to get some measurements

Gnarly, how did the forward control extensions work out? I have a 97 1100 Ace and would be interested.

They work great!
I ordered a second set, to replace the Mapams on the '97, but those guys have been swamped with work...I will try to call and see if they are getting caught up.

What are you going to do with the Mapams you have? I like the look of those better, and if they'll work on my bike, and I can get them cheap, I might be interested in taking them off your hands or out of your garage. :grin2:

IF or even WHEN they have mine ready, you get the first chance to buy them, ABQ.
I got them from our very own Harryc.
Really like them, but be aware: they are only 4" extensions.
The ones that Scootmods built for the '96 ACE are nearly 9" extensions....more comfortable, to me.
Regardless, you get first chance, if I upgrade.

Thanks! Pictures of them would be nice, too, when you get it back. I realize that may be a while from now, but I appreciate it.
