I sure wish one of our vendors would reproduce a nice 3-speed shifter lever . Im surprised no one has yet.
They'd be lucky to sell 2 of them per year.Im surprised no one has yet.
Sorry, I stand corrected. I got curious and researched chrome plating and found businesses that do that in the US. I'd heard rumors that that business was forced to move outside the US due the caustic nature of the work.If the base on yours looks like the 4 spd, they'll interchange. The repro price is probably close to being the same as a re-chrome (though I don't know of anyone in the US that does re-chrome work).
Hey, I used to live 5 blocks from them..... in 1961.Last I heard, the only complaint about this companies' work was it's much better than factory-

Rule of thumb for offshore reproduction is market for 500 items, minimum. Made in US, much higher.They'd be lucky to sell 2 of them per year.
I'm pretty sure the 3 & 4 speed shifter handles are physically interchangeable (but not functionally) so buy this and fool your friends.
