So, maybe I am misunderstanding this, so please forgive me if I am wrong ...
Basically, it sounds like rather than purchasing a "proven design" from somebody in Europe, who has worked out all the details, and invested in producing a foot shifter mechanism, presumably for sale ... you plan on copying his design and marketing it to others here in the States?
While it is perfectly reasonable for you to make a copy for your own use, to make it available to others seems pretty shaky to me ... Perhaps it would be a better idea if you provided a link to this guy's products so that others on this board can decide for themselves whether they might want to purchase this guy's blood, sweat, and tears for themselves.
Just saying ... and if I misinterpreted your note, my apologies in advance.
