Thanks to Ralf Brinkmann for providing this information on the Yahoo! Loopframe_Guzzi news group.

The shifter shaft with lever used on footboard equipped models (MG# 13251240) is relatively rare and somewhat difficult to source. A replacement can be made using the preselector shaft from a 4 speed transmission (MG# 12236800 or 5 speed transmission (MG# 14236201).

Arm I fabricated to fit on the shaft. This is before welding and removal of the unnecessary extra length.
