Bond Bug ZZR1400 Project



Quick shifter and paddle gears

To improve gear changing speed and to remove the existing gear knob I have fitted an electronic flat shifter gear change. It is mounted on the main frame, operates

the ZZR 1400 engines gear box electronically via paddles on a new BMW Mini Copper S steering wheel above. I have modified the steering wheels centre logo to a new black 'B' for Bond.

The existing Bond Bug steering box has been reconditioned and the main drive shaft has been modified to suit the larger spline on the Mini steering wheels boss. Current work is continuing to fit a Mini

Cooper S squib ring to the new column for switch gear.
