I am a novice rider and purchased a used, low mileage bike at an estate auction, a 1980 Honda CM400A with 1,200 miles on it. I have been making repairs and riding it as often as I can, and am loving it.
My question is this... The right foot peg mount has a strange piece of metal/wire that loops over the top of the foot peg. I attached a picture I found on ebay of the peg mount showing the metal loop on the right side.
So, what is that wire there fore? It just seems to get in the way of my feet. I would assume it is there for safety reasons, but I just don't know what or why. Is it safe to remove the wire?
Thank You in advance,
