There is a handlebar mounted, cable operated device for selecting up or down shifting, no?

Yes ....

For up shifts, just need to press the clutch pedal ...
Down shifts are from pulling in the reversing detent lever...

On my scooter I used a brake lever from the first year Harley started installing front brakes ...

That looks like a speed-e-shift similar to what my Dad had ran his '47 Knuck when I was a kid. Is it? He also ran a Vard front end. Thanks

I have about half of a speedy shift I've had laying around for the last 35 years or so thinking I might try to make the missing bits some day. Not a likely scenario.

And I can't see that blanked out photofukit picture!!

If you want to build another Jessie I have about half of the main mechanism.

Been thinking about building one using Stainless Steel and polishing it ...
Think I'll do that when this one wears out ...
