Standing pegs on a bike

Years ago, and we are talking about at least 30 years, Skyway, a BMX wheel maker, had a great idea to make standing pegs that were necessary for freestyle tricks. These pegs screwed in to the axle of the bike, like what is seen here. Notice those black extrusions on the bike wheel. In any case, many people had them on their bikes as they were pretty popular. If you could not get or afford Skyway’s peg stands, there were lots of, uh, compatible ones available. Most of the time, people would screw them into the rear axle. This was to facilitate the bike rider giving a lift to his friend. All the friend had to do was to stand on the pegs. This bike I saw had the pegs installed in the front. These bring backs lots of memories…
