    One question: How did you replace the handle bars? Where did you get the hand shifter to work with aftermarket handle bars?

    Hi. It's just a clamp that holds a flat plate and you build the bars up from that. The hand gear changer is a revolving bar with a nut going through the middle so it only moves to the gear selection area. Easy. Also has a quick release throttle. Hope this helps.?

    That's a nice re-build, but since your "video" is actually all stills, you could also create a proper step-by-step of the project, which would be a lot more useful to somebody wanting to follow in your footsteps.
