Left foot clutch was the plan. The bar for the jockey shifter is 12mm in diameter. Finding a lever bracket to fit this will be difficult.

I was told the top four on the main stacks were built into the building. I.E. the lift they have to change the other bikes out doesn't go that high.

I didn't realize the museum is built with incredible air handlers so there is virtually no dust (and therefore they don't have to clean the bikes often).

No I didn't see him. Wonder if he was one of the many seminars? I only spent one day in the museum.... Which equaled 5 hours and didn't see everything. Unbelievable place.
He may have been one. One of the guys involved with the Iron Butt Rally is tied to the museum, not sure how. My guess is Paul was down there supporting them because they put his bike in the museum
