Manual transmission, with a suicide shifter no less. Had no idea they had speeds (thought they were glorified mini bikes). How many gears?

I'm guessing it might be a clutch lever.

If I remember right those cushman eagles had a two speed transmission and still had a centrifical clutch. A friend had one in the early 1960s.

If Joe doesn't buy that one, we'll likely never know these answers (I know Gewgle might know but ain't nobody got time fo' that).

Buy it Joe!

I wouldn't even start a GFM for this thing!

I see no need nor purpose.
Although at times when I look around at my stuff, I'm beginning to feel like an end user antique collector.

What's that?

I think you just don't have anything old or interesting. Maybe you need to become a Model T hobbyist.
