    Here"s one I built awhile back. I sold it last summer, but that just gives me an excuse to build another ( like I need I reason to start a new project )[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG] I took a scull head shifter knob you could get at a auto parts store, then I drilled and tapped Holes for the spikes. The base part of the shifter is Sturmy Archer, I cut off the lever and handle they had on it, then I rolled some round aluminum rod, tapped one end for the scull head and molded the other end onto the base.

    Suicide shifter on my Phat Stretch. Tough to see in the pics. I will try and take some more close up pictures. It is a Nexus internal 7 speed hub.

    I didn't really "fab" anything for this, but sometimes it feels like finger suicide when I shift it!

    I love this bike.

    Goes to show that the seat can be where it needs to be a real rider and still look killer. Show and Go :eek: not Go and Show :?

    Thanks, Al. When you're 6'4" you need a long seat post. This bike is still really small for me. I'm adding a stem that will increase my reach and some bull horn bars too.
