TBS rear set conversion
I took the TBS to the Bennington rally last weekend and enjoyed meeting fellow owners of the marque. I spent most of Saturday in the saddle with a few new found friends, rode up Mt. Equinox, Tinmouth and hinterlands on the VT/NY border.
I'm really enjoying the bike. One thing I'm hoping I can change is converting the rear sets to the peg location on the standard Thunderbird. I looked at a friend's standard and it looks like his shifter has no linkage and the lever has less play and more direct.
Has anyone done this? I've looked for conversion kits but, so far no luck. My knees were pretty stiff after a day on the Sport. Standing on the pegs and stretching my legs while riding helped but, even so...I'll be 70 in a couple weeks and a career as a mason has taken its toll on the knees.
Any help most appreciated!
