Yaffe Banana Floor Boards

Anyone running these that could share some comments and pictures? Did a search and came up with nothing. Are they a direct bolt up on the stock hardware, just remove stock floorboards and put these on? Do they drag easier in turns than stock (or about the same)? Comfort of them? Overall likes/dislikes? Pictures also please. Thanks!

Are you talking about these? I know I have seen several of the Yaffe builds with them on, but maybe he is having his own made now. The ones shown here are from CycleVision.

Remove two small bolts on each floorboard and install (direct bolt-on). No lower than stock so they do not drag anymore than stock boards would.

Yaffe making banana boards??, I doubt it!! More like someone making banana boards for Yaffe and he puts his name on it. Most likely Cyclesmith or whomever is making them for Cyclesmith with Yaffe hiking the price.

You are probably right, motorcycle parts are just like any other name brand designer product. Once a name is established, they could sell polished turds and people would still buy them-LOL.

Yep, that would be them...cyclesmiths. Saw them in his (Yaffe) catalog. Found them in Cutsom Chrome and gonna check out some other sources for pricing. They look like they might be nice for those of us with a size 12 boot. Thanks. Anyone running them with any other opinions on them?

Several people on here have them. You will either love them or not. I've had a set since the first of last year and love them. They give allot of different riding positions and since I have a size 11, I can say that a 12 should do just fine on them.

I got mine from Murray's Cycle on ebay for just under $270 for the 19" boards.
