One handed modification - where to go? - November 16, 2015, 04:23 PM

One of the riders in my BRC this last weekend was born with just one finger on his left hand. We worked with him and setup a rudimentary method for him to work the clutch- but it's not going to pass muster for road riding.

Does anyone know of a shop or resource that can setup a bike for someone with disabilities like essentially just having a right hand?

Somewhat related. I rode this on saturday and it's actually a lot of fun, also no clutch. They've got other models too. When you give it full throttle, it'll spin up to 600cc or greater acceleration, but on gentle throttle use throughout the rpm range it's very manageable. The other models are more tame as well.

www.rekluse.com but not too many street options

EFM Auto Clutch I believe these guys will custom make an auto clutch for any bike.

Yup. I would go with an auto-clutch setup. Then the problem is moot. 95% of the same control, no stalling at a light. Win-win.

Sources for parts, I bet most shops could install the kits:
