Re: Suicide Clutch
Back in the 50's, owned 2 Harleys a 1936 80ci flathead and a 1949 FLH 74ci, first year with Hydraulic front fork. Both had rocker style clutch's that stayed released or engaged with over center springs.
A few club members installed homemade suicide foot clutches that worked like a car clutch. The advantage was for speed shifting, like drag racing.
The foot clutches were on left side so a rider would lean to right when stopped. One night I stopping along side the pavement. The cuff of my jeans was over the brake pedal, and over I went. The good ole days, when we were young and dumb. lol
