I've done a search here and the innertubez and not found much inspiration.

I made high mids like this.


Right side shift ironhead. Looking for solutions and suggestions for modding stock shifter and brake arm to get them about four inches higher that won't look like ass. What have you dont? Pics are a definite plus.

Thanks!

I started bending some 1/2" round rod up today to graft into the stock levers. I think it'll work out well enough and look decent after chroming. Pics to come once it's done up and mounted.

I ended up modifying the stock levers with 1/2" round rod. Not riding yet, but it looks and feels like it should work just fine. Looks like this.

That looks like it should work. I was going to suggest linkages like on rearsets. Also, the brake crosover shaft is splined, so you can always adjust the angle of the brake lefer up if you wanted to. Same with the shifter too I think. Bike looks great BTW. kind of like Tokyo meets So Cal.

It seems good sitting still and working the controls. The long brake linkage is not hooked up yet, so the brake lever in the pic is not clocked all the way up.

Tokyo meets SloCal, lol.

Thanks for the compliment. The drag pipes will be going away. I want to do some like this...

The controls look good and I like your idea for the pipes!
Thanks dude! I'm usually not good at fabricating from scratch. I don't necessarily have the engineer/design type brain. More like a monkey with sticks and rocks, lol. I like to find something I like and copy it. I couldn't really find anything to copy without crazy linkages that just seem to make things more complicated than they needed to be. So I winged it and it turned out pretty nice. I still need to clean up the welds and come winter have it chromed.

I think I'll do some very slight turnout's/turnup's on the exit for the exhaust.
