Anyone Know Who Makes These?

I saw these on a bike for sale. I was wondering if anyone knows who makes them or if it is a custom build?

Thanks

Not sure of those are the Happy Trails highway pegs/engine guard, but it looks like them...

+ 1.

Happy Trails "Engine Guard (w/highway pegs)" gets my vote.

Got 'em; seldom use the highway pegs, because . . . in my view, their use involves some loss of vigilance and access time to controls (foot brake, shift lever).

I may use 'em when I ride with my Harley buddies, just to "fit in!"

They look like Happy Trails to me. I have them on my KLR and they're handy on longer trips, at least for me, to change my seating and leg positions a little bit. It seems like just shifting things around just a few inches for just a few minutes can make a big difference. You do get a lot of vibration off them, though. They're also a very handy place to attach a PVC tool tube with some stainless steel hose clamps.

Mine is more like the ones that KLR650.com sells, but I only have the bar/pegs..

On longer rides, I actually do use mine just to shift weight around.. Mostly out of boredom..

Also a great place to mount aux. lights..

Also a fun place to mount my GoPro camera.

I have an El Cheapo action cam I bought that works fairly well but I never had much success with it on my helmet. Thanks for the idea. I think I'll try mounting it on my HT nerf bars I bought along with the highway pegs/skidplate.
