Iron mids inkage




Finished the linkage to convert the '74 ironhead from right side shift over to left. I never really liked the look of the long swooping stock pedal that was the brake (or shift pedal in '75ish and later) so I put a pivot up near the peg. Right now the vertical pivot arms are too tall in my eyes but once I replace the trans shifter shaft to work with this setup, I'll know how much linkage throw is needed for the right shifter "feel" and be shortening them.

Put them into production?

Those welds are super sani, I think I personally would like the pedal to swoop up just a bit more for more leverage and to prevent accidental engagement. Still you are killing it.

Yeah, the shifter arm will get the torch treatment to bend a bit more. I may even add a heel kickshift to the whole shebang for heel/toe action.

I built a forward control setup similar to that for a 75 iron. I found having the front arm off the shifter being way shorter helped out quite a bit. You built a really pretty setup. I dig it.
