All British bikes were right side shift, sportsters were too for a few years. Also, to make things more complicated, some bikes were 1up 3down shift pattern (most BSA’s)
Yes your right we had the gearchange on the 'Right' side! Dam Japs they got it wrong and we had to follow (Lol). 1 up 3 down on most (inc Velocette) who needs more? having 4 gears is so easy to remember which gear your in. But of course you had to always remember to get home before dark as Mr Miller and Lucas were King and Queen of the dark (Lol) There is nothing like an English made bike, they always left a 'mark' in their parking spot .... obviously as a reminder (Lol)
