Anybody know a source for classic pump pegs like these...

I have a bid in on eBay on a vintage frame that will be part of my "Rosebud" project (from the movie Citizen Kane) to recreate the bike of my youth. Even finding the same brand and model didn't seem sufficient as there were numerous small variations over the years but I have finally found one that is almost identical to my old bike. Except...it doesn't have pump pegs. Perhaps it's a couple of years newer and into the period when they started using frame fit pumps or something but for whatever reason it doesn't have them. Anyway, since I would be repainting it to match my old one, I'd just as soon have the pegs brazed on. But where do I find them? I need some that look like the ones in the picture below. Does anyone know a source?

the peg in the OP is considerably different than the NOVA one. If it's not close enough it looks like it's turned in a lathe and then bent. Of course, that's probably going to add considerably more than $.47 to the cost of the bike unless someone makes it as an act of charity.

If you can't find them, you could salvage from a scrap bike? ..Or get 'em turned. Hell, they're small, you don't have a lathe, you could get a piece of HSS rod, (old drill bit) anneal it and mount it in a dril press.. spin it and go to work with a file or maybe dremel.. cut it off, bend it and then harden/temper.

a good project.. should take a few hours.

have fun.

Why HSS? I'd just use plain ol' garden variety 1/4" steel rod. Much easier to turn on a drill press and no annealing needed.

Check here... http://ceeway.com/Bosses.htm

On second thought, it's not that much different than the one Scooper linked.

I did a couple of jobs like that in high school metal shop. As per post #3, turned and bent.

If there is still such a thing as highschool metal shop nearby, you may be in luck.
Might even braze it on for you.

Otherwise, any machine shop could fab you one from that picture, ...but it won't be 47 cents.
