    I have 2004 BG chopper. the connecting rod , the one that connects the foot shifter to the rear transmission shifter level has come apart. the front connector that bolts to the foot shifter has popped out. it looks to me like the hole in the rod is worn. I am wondering what ideas are out there to either repair this or find a new rod. I have uploaded a couple of pictures WP_20180713_11_40_04_Pro.jpg of the problem pieces.

    Is the swivel made into the rod itself? If that is the case, call Donna and see what they have.

    Yes the swivel is made into the rod. i will give Donna a call on Monday. This bike was customized by RIck Fairless of Strokers Dallas. I called the today as well and they are also looking for me. the rod is not standard. if I have to I will find a standard one and use it but I was hoping to find a replacement for this one. here is a better picture of the rod

    Just for the hell of it I would browse up cycles on line. They probably have a couple hundred to choose from.

    I was at Derrick & Donna’s a few weeks ago during The Gathering, Derrick helped me with my new rod for my extended farward controls. They have all the lengths and the ends!!
