Look Ma, No Hands!
Nice find, the two-speed manual can be a very pleasant hub to go cruising with. Might have been a left-handers bike. Don't know that I've seen more than one or two with the shifter on the left hand side. The other thing I might add is if you need to swap out the shifter cable, make sure the one you're getting is long enough. Believe the cable set-up for the girls bikes was shorter.

Wore out three sets of tires already!
Good catch on the shift lever being on the left side.. may want to switch that back to the right and move the brake lever back to the left.. Shift cable may just need to be adjusted properly.. guy may have messed it up trying to swap it over..

Thanks for this tip! Much appreciated.

There does seem to be a lot of slack on the shifter cable so maybe it was moved. Thanks again!
