I see this is your first post. Did you look at the dates for any of the previous posts on this thread? It was started in 2009 and the last post before your post was in 2011. I know some of the people posting are still members with the forum but several have just left completely. Maybe you can go to the newbie intros and tell us a little about your ride and yourself including where you are from and what wrenching skills you have. Pictures of your bike would also be great if possible. If you tell us what you are interested in we may be able to help you.

weld a tab on the linkage on the tranny and run 2 clutch cables, one on bar and one on jockey.

L2fish I thought the hand shifter up near the tank was just such, a hand shifter. When guys started chopping and Bobbing motorcycles they took the long tank shifter off and put a small handle down on the transmission. A guy in my neighborhood had an Indian chopper like this. He told me it was a suicide shift because you had to take hand off and lean down to grab it. Some of the old HD's had foot clutches which was a balancing act when you stopped. My friend had a 1946 45 inch. It had a foot clutch, tank shifter, spark advance, foot brake. And she was a girl! Talk about chewing gum and walking at the same time. LOL

denny6006 A buddy had an old Pan with the foot clutch and it was a pain to ride I don't blame you for the hand clutch,the old 4 speed harleys shifted like a truck ,the trans was nowhere near as slick as now.I was just curious.
