Late model cb77 footrests - spring?

Post by GregMcN » Tue Mar 17, 2020 3:52 pm

Hi
I have a late model cb77 with folding footrests. I was wondering if there should be a spring on these as they keep folding up when I do not want them to!
If yes does anyone have a picture?
Thanks Greg

No return spring was ever used on CB’s.

Thanks Tim,
looks like I will have to learn to live with it or devise something myself.

Greg,

Have the same problem with them folding up when raising my foot from the ground. Thought maybe to tack weld them in the down position. The CB72 I owned in the 1960’s had the non-folding type which were much more practical.

Hi Gordon,
Yes I also have an older bike with the fixed footrests which I much prefer. I guess a tack weld could work quite well though if I can find a way of fitting a spring I think that would be my preference.
Greg
