My 1980 PKN-10E came with dual shifter bosses; I don't know when they started to come through with those instead of the dual-boss clamps of the early 1970s models.

As for knowing shiz, that reminds me of a little joke:

Two strangers are sitting in adjacent seats in an airplane.
One guy says to the other, "Let's talk. I hear that a flight
will go faster if you strike up a conversation with your fellow passenger."

The other guy, who had just opened a good book, closes it slowly,
takes off his glasses and asks, "What would you like to discuss?"

The first guy says, "Oh, I don't know; how about Nuclear Power?"

The other guy says, "OK, that could make for some pretty interesting
conversation. But let me ask you a question first: A horse, a cow,
and a deer all eat the same stuff, but the deer excretes pellets; the
cow, big patties; and the horse, clumps of dried grass. Why is

The first guy says, "I don't know."

The other guy says, "Oh? Well then, do you really think you're qualified to
discuss Nuclear Power when you don't know --it?"
"Far and away the best prize that life offers is the chance to work hard at work worth doing." --Theodore Roosevelt
