007Forward controls...

Forward controls are done in mild steel with slightly tougher steel for the shafts. Chroming or painting is the customers responsibility as quality and cost varies greatly.

Controls are designed for lightness, simplicity and strength. Shafts are usually removable in case of a bingle.

No two sets are the same and often the customer is encouraged to follow a theme that matches the whole bike.

This set uses clevises of another bike and a set of old Anderson pegs picked up at a swap meet...

this push rod is just that an XF Ford pushrod... light and strong! Part of pedal that foot pushes on is cut off an old 40's English bike brake lever...
