That doesn't look like a shifter. and that Rail adapter is very cool, never seen one.
It's a locking brake lever, I just need it to pull on the toggle enough to switch gears, the spring in the hub will hold tension on the cable keeping it "locked" in place. (Fingers crossed of course)

The rail adapter is a bmx thing I believe. It is kind of limited in adjustment though so if its a fancy angled post you might be pushing your luck on the seat angle.

done for tonight ... will finish grinding off whats left of the chain guard tabs tomorrow, and mess with the cables tomorrow probably. I think I'm going to weld the old c/g tab to the frame stander and bolt the coaster arm to it. The duct tape will come out later though :wink:
