It's so pleasant to see new things popping up for the Rebel almost daily now ^^,
And now someone has adressed the issue with not having any forward mounted pegs and controls.
Seems it's a custom shop somewhere who has put this together on a Rebel. Can't find it for sale anywhere, so my guess it's a one of a kind made for the bike as a show off of sorts.
BUT! It only means that someone else will sooner or later come along and start making such a part available for purchasing.
So it's good news Kenny G!

I would love to see some options become available. I'm only 5'9" so I'm not really cramped in the stock position and I wouldn't want controls wayyy up front but something even like 4" further up would be perfect.

The forward controls are a definite need....

Lyoko,

Eventually I will have a Rebel that fits my long legs. If I had the forward pegs shown I could probably lower the seat an inch and a half.

I love the bike with the red paint job, I have seen that Rebel on Facebook.

I can't wait till I can get my hands on some decent forward pegs. I don't mind the controls where they are, just need somewhere to stretch my legs out when cruising on the highway. Took the expressway to work today (70-75 mph for 25 miles) and would've loved to have that.
I'm considering to look into making a highway bar for mine, since I too don't mind the controls being where they are.
Not too sure how to proceed with one thou, but time will show.

I figured I'd suck it up till winter time. If a bolt on aftermarket isn't available for forward pegs I'll probably look into the highway bar and fabricating a foot peg bracket.

Yeah I'm thinking about getting a bar from somewhere, since there is alot of them out there. Surely one out there might look decent enough on the Rebel, and simply weld on some brackets to make it fit/fasten.

I'm 5' 18". I just made two brackets that use the existing front engine mounts and extend forwards about 4-5". Bought 2' of 3/4 steel tubing, drilled holes in the brackets for the tubing & tack welded it. Remove assy. weld, paint & install. $3 for the tubing & about 3-4 hrs. in the shop!

Sounds easy enough, any pics?

Pictures! Pictures! Lots of them! Where you mounted, how, etc!

I had a CTX700DCT and the forward pegs killed my back, I had to get rid of it. These don't look as far forward as what I had but I like the pegs where they are now.

Did you ever come up with a solution? Being able to stretch my legs straight out, comfortably is one of my priorities on any bike. I like the "standard" foot positioning, but just want some highway-pegs. I installed the H2C CrashBars, hoping they'd fill the void, and they do, in a pinch. I can throw my legs up there, but the bars hit the very top of my boots and it feels like my feet are going to go into the front wheel (but they're much higher than the wheel is, it just feels like my feet are too close together when I do this). It works when I just want to stretch for a minutes, but not the most comfortable and not the ideal position either.

I guess the next step would be to try to clamp some footpegs to these H2C CrashBars somehow elongating them a foot and a half longer... I might just forget about the idea.

Those forward controls referenced in this thread seem like they'd be about as forward as the original Rebels. The bike is so small, and that kit looks like it moves 'em forward maybe 5-6-inches which would still not be "real" forward controls for a 6-foot tall person.
