Suicide clutch, tank shifter setup?

Is anyone running a suicide setup on a Vulcan? It doesn't seem like it would be super hard to setup. Just make a pedal pivot and use a shorty cable for the clutch, with a fabbed pedal, then fabricate a tank shifter using the bottom of the foot shifter. Anybody have picturss or ideas to share?

Yeab I rode one all summer when I was 16. It was a friends shovelhead that had been bobbed and chopped. Suicide clutch and jockey shift. I can't imagine a way to do a jockey with the vulcan unit setup, but a tank shifter shouldn't bad to bad.

Jockey shift will be the only way you can do it.

Maybe I should define a jockey shift. On a HD, it is a hand shifter using a ratchet cover on the transmission. One forward and one back. The shifter returns to the middle after every shift.
