    Looks OEM to me. That's shipped to a US address. Paypal is fine.

    If you sent an address, I didn't or haven't received it. It should show up on P.P.

    I re sent it, my messages were full and I did not catch it. So if you sent me one, I did not get it.
    Thanks

    Ryan,

    According to your email to me you were lucky enough to find a NOS police shifter for 5 gallon tanks at a thrift store. Great, good score! Especially lucky after we made a deal with the one I have with me shipping it to you for inspection before payment, but then as luck would have it, after packing and taking it to the P.O., they found the address you gave me was non existent, and then the next day after you gave me a second mailing address and I asked for payment up front because of the confusion with addresses, you were most fortunate to find a NOS one at a thrift store.

    If you would, please post a picture of the NOS shifter with a tape measure like I did in post # 3 so those of us that have a shifter laying around and are not sure if it is for 3 1/2 or 5 gallon tanks can all learn from your good luck and it would be nice to see the NOS shifter and see if it has any shelf wear or looks new.

    Thanks.

    Bob,
    I know this sounds fishy, but it absolutely true and I am glad you brought it in front of the forum, but you forgot to mention that I offered to compensate you for your time and efforts. I had no idea that I would have ran into a shifter at a thrift store and would not have even stopped at the store if it wasn't for my nephew who really wanted to stop. It's will gladly take pictures of the complete shifter that I bought at the thrift store with measurements. Now I did not need the whole shifter, only the handle, but will take pictures of the whole shifter as well if you like because there is a part number on the shifter bracket. Would you also like to see the handle handle on the bike as well to see the clearance between the shifter and the tank?
    I do not have a smart phone nor a camera, but I do have a kindle that does take pictures, so this will be the perfect opportunity to use it as well to post a picture on this site. I have never posted pictures on this site, and may have a question or two on doing so.
    The guy at the thrift store also had some old nos military 45 parts, std pistons and rings sets, ring sets and some other small parts. He said he had cylinders, but had sold them a recently. He said he also gave parts away at door prizes at bike night events.
    I am really glad I stopped at the thrift store because I learned a lot. He had old posters and pictures of a Thor dealership in my home town in 1911 and also 1914 posters and pictures of an Excelsior and Indian dealership in my home town. This guy really had some neat stuff!!

    Bob,
    I have all my photos taken. I am sure glad you asked me to do this, because I have no idea what I am doing on bringing in the photos. Please bare with me while I figure out how to do this, I need to learn it anyways.

    ps: Would you also like to see a picture of the bike and sidecar while I am at it?

    Here are some photos of the shifter bought at the thrift store. I hung the new shifter on my existing shifter so you would see both of them. I took a picture of the part number on the shifter bracket as well. I also took pictures of the measurements that Bob asked for. This shifter clears my 5 gallon tanks.
    I also took a picture of the shifter and kicker arm together that was purchased. The kicker arm does not have a part number, but I do not know if the chrome ones did, I also cannot see forge lines on it.

    Bob, if you need any more pictures, please let me know and I will gladly oblige you. Enjoy your day fellows and be safe, I am going for a long ride now that I have a new shifter, it is suppose to be 85 and sunny all day!

    Oh, I forgot to address the non existent address, I have two places in separate towns and put the street address of one place with the town of my other place. So yes, I made an error with the address.
