Hi

I'm looking for a replacement nut and backplate for the rear Simplex downtube shifter (see picture attached). Does anyone have a spare/know where I might be able to find one for it? Happy to pay, and cover postage costs.

Cheers,

Nick

Looks as if you also need the back plate as well. I've just got a load of old levers etc. and there might be a Simplex one in there that might have the correct parts. I know there are some Huret bits there - but don't hold your breath!

cheers old ned, let me know when you find out. i have been in touch with some of the bike shops near me who stock retro bikes, and a decent selection of 2nd hand parts, but they seem to suggest unless someone has a backplate/nut going spare then its more likely i will have to get a new shifter on there which is a shame, as i really want to keep the original one!
