i'm gonna build one for my '68 rigid. i have an idea that i think will work & let me shift with my left hand. nick, yours looks good but ours has a right side shifter--makes it a little more difficult. how did you hook up your foot clutch??
that's what i planned to do---cut the stock cable & make a bracket to run it to my left forward control pedal, which is currently the rear brake. i will then rig the right pedal, which is now the shifter, to control the rear brake. the hardest part is to build a jockey set-up that will transfer from the right side to the left . i'm gonna first try bending a rod to come across the cases behind the rear jug---on my paughco set-up i've got plenty of room there. i'm hoping that i can just bend it in a "s" shape & make it work instead of having to use linkage of some sort.
