Bar end levers
« on: February 05, 2009, 12:23:22 PM »
When I had my Ural, I had missed a chance on E bay to bid on a set of bar end levers.
The WW2 Beemers had them and they look pretty cool.
I was just wondering if maybe the bar end lever wouldn't look cool on a R.E.?

I ran up on a guy on a old Harley the other day, had a suicide shift, very cool to look at,  don't know if I would be commuting with it though.

That is cool!  Where there's a wil, there's a way.

Mr Garbone, I've had 3 Indians- it's no problem commuting.  In fact, it's kind of fun.
Just takes some getting used to taking off on left-hand turns with a left side foot clutch, is all.  Oh- and hills.   (hahahahaha)

You could set up a suicide shifter with a push button clutch or lever clutch attached to the shifter. Maybe use a small lever like a Daugherty comp release. You would want to move your throttle to the left. It would definitely fit the laid back style of the Bullet.

hmmmmmm, that pivot looks easy, but my Electra shifts on the left, might be easier there? ???
Foot clutch? has to be on the left, the brake pivot is there so a little "re-engineering"?
A shorty cable, a pivot, a brace welded on the frame...............................
See the smoke commin' from my ears! ;)
The weather better break or else!
