This is a group purchase for some nice billet aluminum shift knobs. The main difference is that these are *not* generic universal billet knobs with cumbersome set screws that come loose, etc. These will thread onto the (stock or JDK) shaft just like the stock knob!

You can choose the following finishes:

-- Naked! (no finish, no powdercoat)

-- Clear Powdercoat (Polished Finish or Machined Finish)

-- Blue Powdercoat (Polished Finish or Machined Finish)

-- Red Powdercoat (Polished Finish or Machined Finish)

-- Gloss Black Powdercoat

-- Grey Metallic Powdercoat

Polish gives a deep mirror finish, machine gives a pearlescent effect. There are no snakes, dragons, swans, rainbows or logos on these. Just a beautiful, purpose-built finish!

Price is $40 shipped (cont. US) for the powdercoated, a bit less for nekkid... maybe lower if the numbers are up there. Email me with a confirmation email. Payment will be via PayPal or USPS money order.

Pics are below and on second page, graciously hosted by Will and Sten, respectively (thanks!).

Regards,

Jimi B

Not only can I not figure out the dimensions, but would that look good without a short shifter? I only have a stock Supra, and that's kinda how it's gonna stay, but I might be interested in this. Looks like it might match my dark red/burgandy-ish seats. My question is, how big/small is it compared to stock knob? I'd probly be in for 1 or 2... Probably 1 machined and 1 polished, both in red. That way, I have 1 for the mood I'm in :twisted:

Jimi,
When will these be available or when will the GB be over? These knobs look awesome, I'll probably be in for 2. Ball shift knobs are the best, I currently have a Momo knob but after getting a JK SS I didn't want to install it and leave marks from the set screws. In the meantime I put the stock knob back on and it just feels awkward compared to a nice round knob. Thanks for offering these BTW.

more pics coming

I'll have more pics up soon to show the proportions a bit better. Hopefully this afternoon...

The knobs are 2" (~5.1 cm) diameter, and the radiused neck is 7/8" (~2.25 cm) diameter. The "style" of these is intentional: purpose-built machined aluminum with no frills; again, choice of natural "naked" finish, clear powdercoated aluminum finish, or the colors mentioned above. No neon, LEDs, flashing numbers, or racing stripes :]

That pic shows an extremely short shifter, however, they look great on stock height as well. I'll try to swap in the stock shifter some time soon if one really needs a pic of that. But overall, I think the pics of the knobs speak for themselves! :] And I realize this style is not for everyone, but I really like the feel of a palm-sized "ball knob." And these things look incredible in person imo. (The camera's flash, or any light for that matter, makes a pic very difficult to show the incredible depth one sees in reality).

As far as a time frame, I would like to get these out in time for Christmas, so I'd say by Dec. 01 I need a confirmation email (you can post here as well) with quantity and finish, as well as payment via PayPal or USPS money order.

If you have any more questions, feel free to ask.

Regards,

Jimi B
