Introduction: New Life for Old School Shifter

Picture of New Life for Old School Shifter

I ride a straight 8 speed bike. This only calls for one shifter and I came up short in a time of need.  Looking around I decided to make an old 10 speed double goose neck shifter make do.  I simply took half of it apart and use it as a thumb shifter.  It works great!
