80's Pegs, how far we have come...

Does anybody else remember stripping out set after set of these bad boys?  I eventually started only using Odyssey Hollow Bullets (my favorite from the era and I actually have a nice NOS chrome set at home waiting for the right bike and a NOS Black set I just put on my 87 Predator).  Bullets weren't much better at not stripping, but looked a helluva lot better.  And were considered BIG back then.

Anyhow, I came across this pic and though of how many of these I bent or stripped back in the day.  Something as simple as pegs sure have come a long way.

FAIR? Who cares about fair? The world isn't fair. Truth is fair. Is it fair that you were born like this? NO! They're not expecting somebody like you in there, Ox. They're expected one of these slugs. You're different. You're weird. You're a mutant. You're a killer. You're a trained killer. You're a LEAN... MEAN... FIGHTING... MACHINE!
