That is beautiful. How is that shifter mounted? And can you reach it when riding without too much trouble? I've been trying to figure out if I can mount a similar shifter on my bike. That is a great job.
The bike shifts fine you can whack the shifter without looking down. The shifter is mounted on a little piece of 1/2" pipe I stick welded to the frame. (out of O2 that day). I ended up putting the large chainring inside out on the inside and the little ring on the ouside to get a decent chainline. I've gotten the "they make shorter bolts" comment so many times I'm just going to leave it.

nice job. i remember you post when you first bought that bike. you really did great on the restoration. it seems that you had gold, silver and black chain color in there. was that on purpose or you just have some extra links that you decided to used ?
