I got these boards for my ole lady's 2007 Honda Shadow 750 this past Christmas. She loves them and they are very comfortable for her feet unlike the stock pegs. They have all kinds of adjustment and are a breeze to install. Looks really nice now and trip ready. Only complaint from my ole lady was that I should of bought them sooner.
The 1984 ½ and 1985 are the same motorcycle and they are the bastard children of Sportsters when it comes to forward controls. As far as I know the only manufacturer of forward controls for the ’84 ½ and ‘85 is Daniel Boone and the reviews I’ve read describe them as flimsy. I’ve been wanting to put forward controls on this ’84 ½ Ironhead of mine for the 20+ years that I’ve owned it but I didn’t want to spend $300 or more on something I couldn’t use. I finally did purchase the Bikers Choice forward controls for the 1986 to 2003 forward controls because the motor mounts for the ‘84 ½ and ‘85 are interchangeable with the 1986 so I figured I could make it work. I’m very happy to say that they work great. There is an issue with the clearance at the forward exhaust but even a half decent “wrench” should be able to make these forward controls work on their 1984/85 Ironhead.
