Hand Shifters

AFT Customs Announces Line of Hand-Shifters for Metric V-twins

Easy to Install Shifters Add Old School Cool to Your Cruiser


Martell, Calif. June 1, 2007 – AFT Customs, the world class custom metric bike builders, today announced the availability of its new line of tribal hand shifters for Metric V-Twins.   The shifters are safe, easy to install, offer the old school look of a suicide shifter while fitting most metric V-Twin motorcycles.


Aft Customs has taken the suicide out of the hand shifters by eliminating the foot clutch system.  The clutch lever now is attached to AFT’s tribal hand shifter making it much safer to ride while keeping the old school suicide shifter look.  These shifters are easy to install and really make a stock bike look custom. 


“Metric riders can now have a bolt on part that really sets their bike apart from the crowd,” said Jim Giuffra, owner of AFT Customs.  This is AFT’s first in a long list of products for the market that will set the company apart from other builders.”


The elimination of the foot clutch gives the rider more confidence while riding versus the foot clutch.  The aft customs hand shifters come in hydraulic or cable operated kits designed for each specific model.  They are made in American of ¼ inch steel to ensure rigidity.  The kits are bolt on in less than an hour depending on the model. 


“After 30 minutes of riding I felt really comfortable with the shifter, remarked Dan Gomez, long time AFT Customs’ customer.  I had the look I wanted without all the hassle of other foot clutch systems.  Now my bike looks custom while still functioning well.”


Like all of AFT Customs’ products, the tribal shifters come in show-quality chrome or powder coat finishes.  The shifter is installed with a minimal amount of tools even by the novice mechanic.  Within an hour or so, rider can be on the road and making a bold custom statement.
