is that a 6" extended rear section? i've been trying to descide on if i want to go 4" or 6" and what drop. was thinking a 4" with 2" drop but if that's a 6" with 2 drop it looks good.

i never understood mounting a hand shifter off the foot shift lever? jockey shifts are cool because they clean up the bars...foot clutch /left side shift is the way to go.and is that a lokar shifter?mmmmkay.
why would foot clutch left side shift make cleaner bars than foot clutch and right side shift?

let me re-phrase.hats off to him if he hooks up a foot clutch on the strength.most people that run this shifter setup keep the clutch on the bars.even if he does hook up a foot clutch,he still must remove his hand from the throttle to shift,so i believe in the left side shift .i also think a giant stick on the side of a bike with such nice lines seems like an injustice.just my 2 bits.

The shifting mechanism is pretty puny on the Triumph, that amount of leverage over rough roads/railroad tracks will certanly screw it up.

I'm a big believer in putting some kind of midway pivot to take the weight off the shifter shaft, and if you're going to do that, why not reroute it to the left side?

you gonna keep it or paint over it ? i had a 45 solo bobber in the early 70's with a sportster tank on it. it had a zig zag man painted on each side of the tank and on the top it had "The Roach" painted in smokey letters coming off a roach. of course i never inhaled (or is that i never exhaled) :)
