    How long is the lever?
    Do you have reason to believe that it's from a motorcycle? It would seem to be short for something similar to the old Harley suicide shifters. And the cam lobe it moves (if I'm seeing it right) makes me think it's a hydraulic controller, which wouldn't be from a motorcycle (as far as I know).

    Indian "jockey shifter" by the looks of it. aka "Suicide shifter" or Jockey shift with suicide clutch. I think it was also an after-market for other brands

    America was founded by tough hell-raisers. Rugged citizens who evaded taxes, spoke strongly against tyranny, grew tobacco, brewed beer, distilled spirits, and smuggled weapons. And it will be saved by those same types of citizens.

    It's not a gear shifter. The taper on the cam tells me it's and in/out lever like a clutch or vari speed.
    We are in a hobby that is supported by losers!!

    I got this at an estate sale. The owner said it was for a Harley Knucklehead. I could not find anything that looks like it. All I know is it is a lever with a knob. Maybe that is all we will ever know about this.

    Definitely NOT Harley Or Indian or any other motorcycle that I have ever seen and I have seen a lot of motorccles

    handle doesn't look like something that would have been in a factory setting, sort of crudely done
    the handle was welded and not finished off
    also reheated in a few places to make bends
    you can see the heating marks from the weld and heating marks from a torch
    IMO

    I'm thinking it might be a conversion from the rocker/foot clutch to a hand clutch on a knucklehead.

    I now think possibly that it is a one arm bandit slot machine handle.

    i think the slot machine handle guess is correct as they had a cam to release the wheels.
