Offset gear knob

Post by matt76 » Sun Dec 28, 2008 21:32

Hi all from Australia!

I have been looking over here without any luck for an offset (ie Z shaped bat with a thread on each end) gear lever peice so that I can reach first gear easier from the fixed back seats in my moke. My next step would be to get one custom made but I thought you guys might know of where I could get one sent here from over there.

Cheers
Matt

Matt, I've never heard of a Z shaped gear lever extension, most of them are just bent. Like the one in the picture below, from Minispares.

"...so that I can reach first gear easier from the fixed back seats in my moke..."
Wow! :shock: You must have gorrilla arms! And how in the world do you reach the pedals?

Note to dense self: Perhaps he's got "fixed-back" seats in the front of his Moke... That should get rid of that pesky image in my head of this guy with inhumanly long arms 'n legs. :wink:

Haha yeah maybe some punctuation marks would have made that read better Robin :lol: It read ok in my head :x

Thanks Tim, yep that bent one would be fine, I will try chase one up from them.

Cheers
