No, he wishes! It looks like someone managed to make a shifter for those weird indian small frame engines scooterworks was selling.

I bet it runs awesome! He took something simple like a broken cable and decided a suicide shifter would be easier/better! pure genius! actually on a smallframe that was probably easier... Can't figure out how to run the brake cable down the fork, why just drill a hole in the fender, brilliant I say, just brilliant...

The only lame part is he painted over the orange, otherwise I'd be fighting keith over it.

What's wrong with the headset? Looks like one side is broke off. Good thing he bought a new headlight.

Clutch lever is backwards?????

Nice seat cover!

I don't think he primed it. If he did, it must have been years ago. There is too much rust on top of it to be recent.

I wonder how he knows it needs points?

Bent front fork?

Looks like he is your typical pack-rat with a yard full of rotting junk. I don't get why people do that.
