    I wouldn't say to bad for a cheap box of hose clamps and a bent aluminum piece!

    You are going need to change your avatar and name to Rat Roddy Piper.

    And start cranking up some Bay City Rollers.

    Sure like the way the front tire is kicked way out 8)
    The matching plaid works well

    Thanks it is just something about plaid that tickles my fancy! This plaid thing turned out to be a good idea! it all started with a rusty seat I reupholstered! I really had no direction or theme for this bike, so if it looks pieced together... it's because it is! But hey, isn't that ratting! haha I am not using that white S7 rim on the front either I am waiting for some stainless steel spokes to come my way so I can give her a Sturmey Archer front drum brake! And then that seat has to have a bent seat post and those bars gotta go back upside down, sometimes you just gotta sacrifice comfort for looks! :mrgreen:

    Your hands are dirty... you know if you just talk about building online and never actually build, your hands will stay clean. :mrgreen:

    Bet it's more like a Hurst ratchet shifter. The spacing has that funny pattern for Sturmie hubs. Bigger distance between 2-3.
    I really liked the ratchet shifter in my buddy's '66 Goat.
