All I have now is the arm and the nub for the pedal. I cannot seem to locate a pedal anywhere. From what I gather the pedal attached to the floor as well? Is there any special trick that you have done to get another pedal on there or??????

I can weld up/make anything. I just wanted to ask before I waste too much time.

Thanks all.

the original pedal attaches to the floor and has a rubber strap to hold it on the arm. The rubber strap is usually the first to go and the pedal will flop off the arm. I would just fab up a piece of wood w/ a hinge and attach it to the floor. If you do locate an original pedal chances are the rubber strap will be broken or missing anyways.

I don't mind the "nub" but of all the things wrong with the Brat, the pedal gets the most flack, lol.

PM sent for pedal.

Thanks.

Anyone have pictures of other solutions? Was thinking about just welding on a slightly rounded metal plate to the nub and calling it a day.
