where to get GL1500shifter brace

I followed the link posted in one of the topic posts. It went to an Amazon page but says out of stock
and don't know when it will be in stock. I don't want a look-alike, I want the peppilepew one. Is there
another place to get that one?

I just put mine on last week. Pretty simple. My seal started leaking after 132,000 miles. I got the one from Peppi le pew. One of the bolts was missing but I dug around in my junk bins and found one that worked. That link that tnt9339 was where I found it.

Well, I guess this thread renewed my interest in the subject. I had made my own in 2014 using my welder & some steel scraps, used a 1/4" bolt shank for pivot shaft, used a 3/8" nut drilled for a 1/4x3/8 bushing as a receptacle. Welded the nut to my F-B's front spacer. For the part that clamps to the shaft, I used a 7/16"-20 wheel nut, drilled to fit the shift shaft just barely, then drilled a smaller hole and tapped 1/4-20 for a hardened pointy set screw. It works but with 1/4" being a small shaft will wear that bronze like bushing faster, so I went ahead and ordered one from P-LePew. I think it will work better with my F-Bs after I shorten a spacer to account for the P-Lepew part. I need to pull my shifter anyway as I want to make a change in it … and I'll put a new shift shaft seal in too. P-LePew had given me C-C specifications, so I owe it to him to buy the product. I'll inspect mine, maybe replace the bushing, polish it up, remake the receptacle part of pivot too, give it to a buddy who is "tighter than Dock's hat band" as he's done me a few favors … being free with labor. His does not have F-Bs.

Well, my P-Lepew GL-1500 shifter brace came today.

It is very well made, smooth as silk action, no looseness,
but not tight either, just right.

Seal in package too. Used the link above, it's legit.

HAHA! :D I sortof feel like I screwed up, but not really.

Today I decided to swap on the new to me shifter brace thinking my self made one was wearing, got the left floor board loose, shifter off, cover off, nothing loose until I noticed the very slight wiggle in behind the exhaust pipes where one lever clamps to the shift shaft coming out the motor case. Used a 10mm, tightened it up through hole, no wiggle. I thought I tightened it before, maybe not?

I checked my pivot bushing for looseness, but there was none, I really expected some wear there. I also see that I built it a little more robust than I recalled, used some 5/16"x3/8" steel for the arm part I see, and the pivot is a grade 8 1/4" bolt smooth shank in a bronze bushing … and it works so well, so I just instead sanded & painted my slightly longer than stock adjustable shifter that I had made, then after it was dry I wrapped it's arm with a polished piece of amuminum, looks good too if I do say so myself. Put every thing back together, it's as near perfect as I can imagine.

Oh well, if not for Pepe-Lepew I wouldn't have made mine, so all's well. I'll sell it down the road but I'll stick it in a box with other goodies for now. I also have a Honda Shifter Seal in a OEM bag, but that'll wait.

Anybody else do stuff like that? :D
