I have had 3 unbroken ones (one NOS) and know of 2 more that |
aren't broken, in the last 25 years
----- ORIGINAL MESSAGE FOLLOWS -----
Kick start lever, early , with clamp slot up as pictured in the
parts book. Except for Mutt I would bet you have never seen
one because they were poorly designed and almost all broke at
the proximal end. The replacement by Harley has
a heavier proximal shaft boss and slot is down.
It took 5 yrs to find one to copy and one year to make them.
The originals were malleable iron, The copy is 4140 steel.
They look the same but will not break. I made 51 of them and
that may last 50 years ??
