77 Ironhead jockey shifter

I am wanting to do this to my 77 Iron. It has a stock frame, but I did cut the shocks off and replaced it with a rigid strut. Any one try to do this to a 77 or a 78? Any ideas on how to make this work? I was wanting the shifter to be behind my leg. If ya have a pic that shows yer shifter lets see it. Much thanks

I guess I will be the first with a jockey shifter on a 77. I will post pics of it once I figure how.

I am doing that now on a 78, using a modified brake pedal for the lever.

it isnt that hard to do, I have some drawings of the way I did my sisters, using the linkage from a forward control set up or making your own, they are easy and the clutch is a real simple thing too. If you send me some pics of your bike both sides , I can convert the drawings for your application and scan em and send em to ya. Also if you look on the JJ there are alot of ironheads with jock shifts. you can check out the action and how they did it.

1sick7 that is a real nice setup you have there. Are you having any problems with it bouncing out of gears when hitting a bump?

So far 1sick7 is the ONLY ironhead I have been able to find anywhere that has a jockey shifter. I find this hard to believe.

I wish you were right BUT... I did the search and came up with only right hand jockey shifters or a right hand conversion to a left. I have the first year left hand and I was hoping to see some set ups that were like my 77.

I have one, but it's on a 73, so the setup is different. A guy here in town modified a newer one like yours to use the brake crossover lever that the older ones use and have that link to the shifter rod to help with not shifting when hitting bumps.

You can also go to the XLforum.com - go to the Ironhead section. I'm sure there will be a lot of them there.
