H-D thumb safety - narrowed

A customer asked me to narrow one of my HD-451 thumb safeties. I like it! What do you think?

I like it.

I'm left handed, so my hope is that HD ambi safeties are available when the waiting list for a full custom gets down to me.

That looks great! Can you quantify the difference in the widths between this modified safety and the stock width? How does the standard compare to an EGW HD thumb safety in width?

Now available!

Just added the narrowed shelf safetys to my web store! You can find them at

https://shop.harrisoncustom.com/extr...c-thumb-safety

Still working on the Ambi and both the original and the narrowed shelf safetys will be available. Here's a couple of pics.
