I am having trouble pushing my left brake pedal on my 68 power king. My foot ends up hitting both pedals instead of just the left. I am always wearing work boots, but I feel like a idiot having this issue. Has anyone else had this issue, if so how did you get around it? Thanks Jimmy

Everyone that owns a PK with the old oval brake pedals has experienced this issue. I always used to twist myself into something uncomfortable and hit the left pedal with my toes. Funny thing is, both of my PKs not have the later big boy pedals, I still find myself doing the same thing. About the only thing you can do is bend the right one out or fabricate new ones.

You could make new ones like Jeff said. I just use my heel to push them, I also were work boots and I don't have trouble like that.
