Default 1976 Ironhead forward controls

Does anyone have pics of their 76 ironhead with these controls. I am thinking of buying some but I do not understand how they work with the brake cable and brake switch. What do I do with the old peg mounts? Anyway as they said "a picture speaks a thousand words." Thanks for your help.

I can sell you a set at a good deal. With the tank I put on, me legs are too darn short.

I got them on mine and thinkingtrying to find stock ones. I'm 5'9" they seem a little far out to reach at times, just don't really like them. Might need to give them a few more miles. I'll see if I can find a picture I have of them on the bike.
