Needing shift linkage-Found!

I have a reversed shifter lever that confuses me when I ride my other bike. Would like to buy the stock linkage and lever or a complete stock rear set, mine is an SP1 if it matters. Mike 505-363-5351

Did they just rotate the lever on the shifter shaft 180 deg?
That's usually how it's done.
There are some rearsets that have the ability to do likewise at the shift pedal end, but aren't that common on the RC51.

I assume the lever rotation was the modification, I just recently purchased the bike with the assurance that the missing linkage would be a simple find. I thought having ridden Britbikes and metrics for many years, my mind would adjust. Oddly the difficult move is back to the standard pattern after riding the RC

Post a photo or the linkage orientation.
A photo goes a long way.

I'll start looking for my camera. That itself may be a challenge!

This is the shaft with the joint on both ends?
I may. Depends on what else I can come up with. Thanks.

Just the shaft alone, no joints on the ends.

Found camera, lost charger.

What Madbuyer had for sale recently is exactly what is missing from my foot controls. At least a half dozen pieces in all.
