A hand shifted bagger...

My club bro rides his bat wing with this set up.







I posted this on the HDF a while back. It's obviously different, but my bro came off of a rigid shovel onto a new FLHT and wanted to have an old school element on his new bike.

What do y'all think?

I think it's pretty cool looking.

The Little Piggy went to the market..

So he can either use his toe shift and/or hand shift (little hog)? Or is it the Toe his clutch and he needs to pull up and down on the hog to changer gears? I don't get it...:confused:
Seems a bit dangerous to always be ridding with one hand only on the handle bars..do you have a link to this set up?

I think the stick shift is cool, more so on late 60's or early 70's triumph choppers though. The touring bikes are just too heavy to mess around with that kind of thing (my opinion only). But, like I said they are neat change.

It's foot clutch, hand shift. It's all hand fabricated. The shifter is stainless steel. It's one forward and four back.

I can't place my mouse on it, but I recall a setup where the shifter as on this scooter also had the clutch on it. The owner didn't have a left leg.

Its takes some big balls to do that to a bagger. Its fun as hell on little bobbers or choppers, but thats a big bike to be hand shifting in mountains and corners. Cool setup though, I dig the older style stuff on new bikes.
