Hi, Any one seen a hand shifter fitted to a Bullet 350 4 speed RH gearbox? If so, is it possible to buy a kit or is it all custom made? Thanks in advance, Daniel

I know it's possible, I've seen one. I have no pictures though. If I remember rightly there was a sort of 'retainer' framework on the tank which held the changer arm and there were recesses cut into that to positively place the arm into when the gears were changed...

Have a look in our hosts' used bike section here:

A few of these Indian badge trikes were shipped to the USA in the late 1950's.

I have done this to a 4 and a 5 speed box in the manner illustrated here:

However, the short 1st gear on the 4 speed means you have to do a fair bit of juggling, when pulling away from lights and the additional leverage places a lot of strain on the linkages.

So, in general, unless you have a disability that needs such a system,I wouldn't bother.
