Hello Jockey Shift Fans!
We were contacted by Colonial Harley-Davidson in Virginia. They were invited to build a custom bike for the World Biker Build Off.They finished the build with a Widow Maker Jockey Shift! Please see the attached photo. We haven’t heard the results from the competition, but we’re thrilled to have been part of the build.
We always love to hear from our Widow Maker family. If you’d like to send us photos and a quick write up of your bike with a Widow Maker Shifter on it, we’d like to post it.
Ride safe and have fun!
Hello Jockey Shift Fans!
We’ve been very busy at Widow Maker Industries the past few months. Sales have been rockin’, especially our international sales.
We’re excited to announce that our website is being updated to include an easier to use shopping cart with a number of new product categories. We’re still offering our 8 different jockey shift kits (each in black or chrome). And, we now have our new CNC machined Billet Aluminum air cleaner caps that fit K&N filters and match our shift levers (see the attached snap shot). They’re available in black powder coat or polished aluminum.
We’ll also be offering “speed hole” brake and clutch levers to match our shifters and air cleaner caps, and “correct length” clutch cables for all model applications.
We’d like to showcase some of our customer’s bikes on our new website. If you’d like to email us some photos of your bike showing your Widow Maker Jockey Shift, we may add it to our website.
Thanks again for all your support. We’ll let you know when the new site is up and running.
Ride safe and have fun! Chip

Hello Jockey Shift fans. We’ve been selling so many shift kits lately that we occasionally run out of inventory. We received more today and will have more coming in next week. We now have our ’88-’95 Softail kits and our S&S special applications kits available.
If you’re thinking about purchasing a Widow Maker Jockey Shift for that special someone for the Holidays, or for yourself, please let us know so we can set one aside for you. They make great stocking suffers (a large stocking would be required).
Thanks again for all your support.
Ride safe and have fun. Chip
