I gotta ask - how does the shifter work with the Bendix Multispeed hub? Is it a friction lever or does it have mechanical stops?

Great bike!!

Thanks Guys for all the comments!!! It was a fun build for me. Best of luck to everyone in the buildoff and there is some swell bikes that have been presented in the RRBO3.

I understand how the hub works with the original shift lever, I am asking how the eight ball shifter works.

Crassly- The shifter is a friction only. It is not indexed or a "clickstick" type. I think it originally came on a muscle bike with a 5 spd. derailer. It works well with the Bendix. I made the shift cable using a union nut that has a 1/4" X 28 thread and a Jagwire cable. I soldered an anchor to hold the union nut on the end. Matter of fact, the rear hub has an axel in it that I got from you. Thanks!!!
