All this reminds me that somebody (Dia Compe?) used to make bar end converters for normal downtube shifters. Basically it was a pair of bar end shifters without the shifters themselves, you just bolted on a your favourite downtube shift levers and away you went.

Does anybody know if it's still possible to get hold of these?

Picked up some campag ones on ebay, arrived today :D in pretty good order just need a good clean up think I might mirror polish the body

Another question, would really like to use steel braided outer cable on these, (going for red cable outers on the brakes) is there a stockist in the UK for this?
