The handle bar end of a threadless MTB stem cut off.
I had a few and tried it out one day and wow it fit. Going to use another one for the foot brake mount on that bike.could have welded or drilled the frame but couldn't make up my mind on location.

8-ball from mini billiard set + tilt knob from old tripod + shimano 3sp shifter = my rat'd out 3 speed shifter!
sorry its not a close shot of the shifter itself, but i dont have the bike anymore. its a 70's shimano click shift with a custom arm/knob.

Here's one that I did a few years ago. It's not a custom shifter but it looks real kewl... It's a old 5-speed Sting Ray shifter mounted like a 'jockey' shift on a custom 1950 Schwinn 5-speed cruiser.
I took these pics a little early before the bike was finished.

Somewhat primitive in design, but with the "idiot proof" theory applied. This is now 6 years old, and still works just like it should. One up close shot, one from far enough away to see the shift lever. Can you say "suicide?"
Not as nice as some of the more machined pieces that have come along in the last few years, but I did what's here with what I had on hand at the time. I don't have any welding equipment so it is a bolt-on piece.
Thanks for looking, and HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!

My dad's a T.V. repairman...he's got an AWESOME set of tools. I can fix it.
This is the typical Sturmy Archer shifter with custom knob for the 3 speed on the Fat beep, cable is internal through frame to rear hub
