    I have a question about the location of a couple parts already on the bike and where they will go after parts from the kit go on. Above is a picture of the bike in its current state. If the throttle needs to go on the right side of the handlebars where would the gear shifter then be moved to for room for the throttle?

    Also where does the front brake move to to make room for installing the clutch?

    Any suggestions and help is greatly appreciated. Thank you for your time.

    like a motorcycle, move front brake to right bar - I like clutch low on left and rear brake high on left - just push shifter closer to center (you'll rarely use it)

    I combined the brakes into one on the right side and that makes room for the clutch. I also moved the brake handle and shifter over enough to fit the throttle.

    Gear shifter can be moved to the seat post, where it is still easy to reach. The shifter mount can be made with a hacksaw, piece of an old handle bar and a hose clamp. 20190303_153246.jpg
