Jimmy-Rigged Shifter on 3 sisters ride b

So the story goes, we had someone accidentally dropped their bike by the lookout point at the 3 sisters (woops), when we picked it up the shifter was pretty bad, trying to fix it caused it to snap. Now we are in a pickle. Luckily we had a hose clamp with us, we used that at first to get it going. (Remember we have 0 signal and are pretty far away from civilization).
Pic 1 - Lasted all day.

Story continues, on the way back home to Houston, it was starting to have issues. Luckily we were close a ACE hardware store. We purchased the following
L Brackets (Came with 4, we used 2)
2 smaller hose clamps
I also had the following in my bag (Batters Tape)

using 2 L Brackets, some batters tape and the hose clamps. We have the following. Worked very very well.

All done by JimRad.

Nicely done. Way to save for an even more frustrating trip home.

When my wife got her bike up in Denton, I agreed to ride it home until we got out of town south of Dallas. So we did. I got off, she got on and fell over at a stop sign trying to put her foot down. No damage to the bike but the shifter did break just like yours. So I rode it to the nearest Home Depot, borrowed a wrench to remove it, borrowed their drills that they demo, drilled it out, bought a Tap, bolt, nut and a hose to fit over the bolt. It worked like a champ the rest of the time we owned the bike!
Just the same way you are tortured by common sense, I am tortured as to why you have none.
