    This is Jill Iverson's Indian Scout LSR bike. Suicide clutch, jockey shift, record holder. Not exactly a cafe but a cool bike (and gal).

    But as for a cafe with a jockey shift I don't think so. It doesn't suit the genre. I would think a jockey shift would come under the heading of "Look what I did because I could".
    Don\'t cry because its over. Smile because it happened

    Doesn't work, not really as a cafe is supposed to ape the race bikes if the era.
    Also, as noted in the thread....mine's not a cafe the low ares are a place holder though they won't be much higher than superbike bars when I DO get'm hung..
    Great spirits have always found violent opposition from mediocrities. The latter cannot understand it when a man does not thoughtlessly submit to hereditary prejudices, but honestly and courageously uses his intelligence and fulfills the duty to express the results of his thought in clear form.

    I can't imagine a practical sense of this on a Cafe Racer either. I would like to see how Jill (noted above) or someone does the foot clutch on rear sets. Conceptually it would seem easy but putting it into action is a whole different matter. Also, about Jill's bike, I guess that lever on the right handle bar is the one and only brake on the rear of the bike? I wish I could see the lft side close up.

    Cool! ---RIP
