That's just the shifter thrown on there until the footpeg/"C" brackets get here

Kinda like a mini jockey shift

Using the passenger pegs

Same with the other side. No rear brake yet-it's a bunch of parts to go back stock '81

Rick,

Might be. It's the way that's most convenient right now

When all the parts arrive it will be per spec.

Too nice not to ride

my setup seems a little different. the lever is definately set with the toe peg much higher and my boot slips under it quite easily. maybe i just got used to it but its definately set up different to the setup you have in that pic. im not able to post pictures or else i would
