Can anyone advise me on any company that can still extend a shifter shaft for me?
I would supply the parts, including the stock shifter shaft, and an extra shaft piece, so they can both be machined and welded together, and trued, etc.
All the car tire bikes seem to have their shifter shafts extended, not sure which company would still do such a thing for a fee.
Ooops, I should not have said all car tire bikes, I should have said some car tire bikes (like the Kosman chassied bikes of yore.
Any local machine shop should be able to do it for you, you just have to tell them how long you want it.
we normally just take two and weld them together.
R&D can do it for you
Just weld 2 together, as long as it is somewhat stright, it will work.
Thanks for the response everyone.
Note that the shaft would go through another external plate, so the shaft would have to be true from end to end to not bind (after being extended).
I was hoping that someone would do the work using a lathe, to do a male/female press fit thing at the joint, then weld and true it afterwards.
Regards to all.
Koenig sells a kit.
