This is the jockey shifter I made for my first chopper many moons ago (viewtopic.php?f=6&t=10989). Excuse the poor photography...
It's a cut down (Shimano?) 3 speed grip shift with an internal sleeve for strength, end of the shift lever is tapped for a bolt, and the whole thing is clamped to a stub welded to the seat tube as it would normally clamp to a handle bar. It worked beautifully! Nothing like cruising along and slappin it through the gears...
Almost forgot this thing. Electric shifter built from a lumbar seat actuator. Left button on handlebar is downshift, right is upshift.

Here's a bump on an old thread. I got a glass eye from my eye doctor when I built this bike about 15 years ago. She'll get a refresh this winter but the shifter will remain! [img][IMG]http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/SBClose/DSC00855.jpg[/img][/img]

Not the prettiest but the most innovative. Love it.
I'd add some fake blood on the blade edge and grip for that authentic look!
It doesn't matter what I paid for it, it matters what it's WORTH. I never buy anything I will regret KEEPING.
