Yep, stick shift, not someone getting confused with the old down tube shifters, but a genuine stick shift :D

I used to have one of those on my Raleigh Chopper when I was a kid (70s). Only 3 gears. :lol:

Actually it was a Taiwanese knockoff - it was called a hopper.

On the seat post tube where it has the decal, what does it say?

Many injuries were had with those type of shifters. Sorry boys but it is true!

Just had a nasty vision: those two spherical objects on the levers - are they OEM or the result of a sudden stop! :shock:
