Shifter Linkages Like You Never Saw Before

Motorcycle-LinkageYou are the firsts to see them. A Florida machine shop, until now not involved with motorcycle parts, made these bad ass shifter linkages (no name, yet) Even if they are not your style, you must admit it’s a brand new design for motorcycle shifter rods, They are 10” OAL 1.74” at the center OD and threaded for 5/16 x 24 on the ends. More variations coming soon. Interested? Contact Stephen Mandarano on my behalf at (386) 676-6377

    Yeah, they are original and kinda cool. I think they should call them the Rook, Queen, and Pawn.

    Reinventing the shifter rod. Pretty kewl.

    I see this design as an inspiration for many other custom parts. Going to be copied very fast.

    Are they patented? Just asking……………..

    Gotta love a CNC lathe. Not my style, but very cool! Great to see new people getting into the game also.

    am I the only one that think this looks like sh*t?

    805FXDX. Until now, yes. Only you.

    805FXDX,I dunno,but they would make great adjustable lowrider coffin handles for funeral in East LA.

    Fully agree with 805FXDX…..

    Reminds me of old chair backs from the 70’s.
    Or a stair rail……
    I’m sure someone will buy them……heck…….people by motorcycle coffe mugs, mug holders, swinging mug holders and bandana’s with flames on them by the millions!

    Never seen before, hope never to see again.

    Terence Tory,

    Rather a ‘registered design’ than a patent.


    No actually not – sh1t has a far more organic shape…

    Kinda resembles turned furniture trim. Not my style, but great someones is thinking out of the normal and something new.

    A guy came into the shop one day to show me a springer he had made in the 70s with wrought iron from Hialeah. Looked just like that.

    They look interesting but all I see is 4 extra weak points along the shift rod which over time could fatigue and eventually fail

    Someone raided a fake 17th century furniture store?

    Lets give em a break. They are tryin in an industry that is pretty much stagnant
    and follow the leader in the daily changing war of whats cool today gone tomorrow. Can’t wait to see the blow out pricing on “Big wheel kits for baggers”. Or maybe they will continue to get larger . Like maybe a 40 ” front wheel drop the seat down to 10 inches off the ground and put some foot pegs on the front axle nuts! That would look like my grandsons vintage 80’s Big wheel. As a matter of fact I think there was some guy trying to produce trikes with that look. Haven’t heard too much about them either.

    Kinda reminds me of Christmas tree ornaments.

    i kind of like the idea for a show bike. Using this piece as an inspiration for a frisco-style bike, incorporationg lathe-style accents like this in linkages, jockey shift ( with tiki head knob, natch) and sissy bar, twisted steel frames with a gleaming bronze finish, peanut tank covered in metal flake and a two-up seat in diamond tuck red velvet, would look very 70’s.

    Bed knobs and broomsticks…FUGLY!

  22. 22 B.K. Nov 14th, 2013 at 10:09 pm

    Not for me…but to each their own. Congrats for them jumping into a compeditive market.

  23. 23 sue Nov 14th, 2013 at 10:13 pm

    Reminds me of Alice in Wonderland for some reason. Would like to see it installed on a bike.

    Looks like something woodworkers made.
