Shifter options 90/6

I've rebuilt a /5 and a G/S, and this /6 motor came out of a G/S frame. So...I realize I don't have a shifter for a /6 five speed. The fiche shows a few different things... A simple lever that replaces this thing, and some other setups. Can somebody give me a quick picture guide/advice to the options here?

I think this is everything to make the linkage work that trans is set up for. It uses the extra foot peg as shown.



This is the shifter than originally was on a /6/

Sorry th pics are so large.

I think that top one only works with later frames, that have a footpeg mounting point on the frame, back at the curve. My frame doesn't have that...I have to mount a footpeg on the rear engine mounting bolt, ala the /5 bikes.

I don't think that the linked gearchange did much good, it wasn't until they lightened the flywheel that gear hanging really improved

Well, since every pic I can find of a 90/6 has the standard fixed gear lever, I'm going to find one of those.

Early /6



Later /6



Just look at the shifters and don't get confused by the rest.

On the first pic you see an /6 engine and box in a /2 frame from my old hack, a rh footpeg mounted lh, to be able to shift in winter, wearing Sorel boots.

Second pic shows a lenghtened and lowered peg on my DS Beemer.

The adjustable ball-end turnbuckle style is helpful if you have big clodhoppers or if you ever wear heavy boots. The non-adjustable linkage style is the worst of the bunch.
