If you sit on it backwards it's right side shift.

looks like a nice bike for the right man) (* OOOOPPS - I meant person not man.)

(Or are these still girl's bikes ?)

Oh damn. Banned again.

Missing the tach cable too. Looks like the drive is aftermarket or capped?? Still not a bad deal it appears.
