    This link is dead.

    The Chopper Underground is gone. It may be rebuilt and up in another form one day
    I wanted to share this, just tried the link and got a front page. It seems they are trying to get things back up and running, so maybe shortly it will be viable again.

    Yes.

    The Chopper Underground

    Web site is basically gone. There is a tapatalk page but only a few folks and none of the old content.

    Oh yes, this is a good one. I had looked at mine and it seems the extension bar is just 1" rebar bent into position and welded in place at each end. It will be nice to see how else it could or should be done.

    Thank you Rex.

    Let's explain what you are doing when you shift gears.

    This is an example of the "hockey stock".

    The end of this is what is sticking out of the trans.

    This what the hockey stick engages in the trans.

    These hooks are the shift rods into the fork and synchro. You are pulling these hooks in and out individually.

    Here the hockey stick in the hooks.

    The trickiest trick to it all is getting that rod to rotate the right amount and stop rotating it the right place to line up with the hook inside.

    The number one thing stopping the linkage rod from being rotated enough is this bushing.

    It must be there and reasonably snug to the shaft.

    So if you are using a stock vw shifter or an aftermarket one that is meant to bolt down to the stock location it will look a lot like this.

    The mount will either be hacked out of the vw tunnel or will be a replacement stock style.

    The main difference in a trike and the car is that that shift rod has been cut in two, shortened, and welded back together......and not particularly in correct or original rotational reference.
