There are surely variuos ways to put a pedal to your kicker arm.This is how I did – and it works fine.
At first you have to cut the “knob” from your kicker arm wich fixes the rubber, Now you can pull the rubber off. There are different diameters of the arm depending on the year of manufacturing. In my case it was nearly 12mm. Because its not really round (there are “seams” on it), you have to grind it a little bit smoother.
Then I did take a 10mm threaded rod and went to a farmer with a welder to weld it on the end of the kicker arm where I cut the knob. The farmer is not necessary if you have your own welder 😉
Take the threaded rod just a little bit longer – you can cut it to the right size if the pedal is on the kickerarm.
I took an BMX “Iron cross pedal”, but that depends on your favour. Take out the complete inwards. Not shown on the pics are the bearings. In my case I had to drill it out a little bit to 12mm for fitting the kicker arm.
I made some brass spacers to prevent the pedal from wobbling on the arm. Brass is even a little “self lubricant”. The spacers have to fit in the bigger holes of the pedal on both sides and surely over the kicker arm. Size may vary from pedal you choose. Theres a washer and a nut at the end to fix the pedal.
Spinning the pedal will tighten or loose the nut, so I drilled a hole through it and the rod and fixed it with a splint. Before you drill find the right position – not to loose or to tight – the pedal should spin well.
Unfortunately my girlfriend got not happy showing her boobs for the perfect last picture. It could have been better! Like my english 😉
Have fun chopping your rides, reynoldburton
