    Can anyone fill me in on this shifter? I am pretty sure the shifter itself is off a Raleigh Chopper, it's a 5 speed shifter. The cover does not seem to match as it has a third slot for something else to come through. I haven't been able to locate anything about it in my searches currently [​IMG]

    As I post this I just saw there was a chopper made with a 10 speed.

    I've tried to find how the 10 speed was setup but I couldn't come across anything, mind you my efforts were limited lol. They will probably end up as display pieces or find their way to the sale pile

    May have to sell the cover. It's cracked on the side but does no one any good hoarding it in my basement. I'd rather rare parts be in the hands of those who will use them

    Is the third lever location for a drag brake?

    It's a 5-speed rear derailleur with a double chainring yielding a total of ten combinations. The left stick selects the high or low range and the right stick delivers either 1-5 OR 6-10, depending on the left stick's position.

    The shifter I have is two positions on the left and 3 on the right so I assume that's a 3+2 shifter.

    It's really one of the hardest things to figure out, I guess I keep the search going for now
