Spotted on the Upper East Side: This is a small bicycle. As a reference point, it’s parked in front of a smallish pick-up truck.

That’s one serious shifter. It wouldn’t look out of place in a vintage race car — or the cockpit of a plane.
I think there is something electrical going on, too (or maybe it’s been removed?) This component says “charger” on the backside. I couldn’t figure out where said electrical bits were.
