first thing's first: i was wondering if there was any sort of conversion for old style handle bar end brake and clutch controls (see attached image of Brough). much like the drive shaft mentioned earlier, i would be on this like white on rice, and since it makes for such a nice old style aesthetic, i would assume it would be great for Royal Enfield motorcycles.

the other thing i noticed was that, although a British style speedometer is very much available, it lacks the other information of the standard speedo such as headlights and turn signals. this is also an aesthetic thing, but i would like something like the low tech one in the store, except with some newer tech behind it. would certainly be cool to have a reversed speed read without sacrificing readout features.

Those are very cool levers. I have not seen a source for them, but I bet with some digging we could find one.

Before you get all exited the man said that was a "Brough" in the picture not an RE.

   Handle bar end levers must have the cable running down the handle bars?

     Might just be more trouble than ---you know.

I'd be interested in the levers as well.  I suppose that is one wanted bar end mirrors with that setup they'd have to be ones that clamped on the OD at the end of the bars prior to the grips depending on how the levers went on...
