It's all yours John, it used a hard cable that pushed and pulled the throttle.

It's your floor.

I think you got it !!

My Harley has a thumb wheel on the bottom of the grip that I set the amount of resistance with to eliminate holding back on the return spring, or tighten it down for cruising.

MARTINSR It's current version is similar but operates quite different in one way that would FREAK OUT todays riders.

What I'm thinking is the "pin", if you will, that goes through the frame and the triple tree, holding them together in a steerable link

496CHEVY3100 Could it be a seat slider tube for the old style seat

MARTINSR I thought that was a triple clamp, so I got the connection, thing is, this part in my photo is from a vintage Harley! So that is why I didn't know if there was some connection with what you said.

So what is this part I posted?
