The lever itself is nicely polished aluminum, direct OEM quality... That being said, it immediately broke at the exact same spot my original one did (where the two bolts are tightened around the splined linkage coming through the frame)!! Not too impressed
If you're trying to but your mid-shift set up back together this is the 76 ironhead lever you need. Got here quick and at a very reasoable cost. Check the splines on the shaft. You may need a new crossover if someone put a cheap forward control set on it.
