I've still got these hanging around as a reminder of my first ever road bike. I removed pretty much all of the OEM kit and this is all that's left.

Shimano Sora STI levers - the sort that shift a bit more like Campag, in that they have a little thumb trigger on the side of the body, rather than a trigger inside the brake lever. They are designed to be hooked up to a Flight Deck.

I didn't have these on for long before I ditched them for a newer set-up, so condition is light use with some marks from storage. The lever blades look spot on, but the LH lever shows evidence of the first (and only) time I ever really stacked the bike and hit my head - there's a bit of road rash and a mark on the hood. I've included it in the pictures...

£35 gets you the levers and includes delivery.

UK Retrobikers only; Paypal is fine if you pay the fee; a set of these went for more recently, so not looking for offers

Sorry I was hoping to receive a new bike today, a tourer with 7x3 set up but stem shifters. It hasn't arrived and apparently won't be here until next week! So as much as I'd like these for that I don't expect you to hold them for that long! If you still have them in a week or two chances are I'll take them...

Apologies for potentially holding up your sale.

Naaaah, I am hardly inundated with enquiries. I'm not in any hurry and I'm not desperate for Paypal tokens...you are by preferred buyer.

If Tel isn't going to have them could I be so bold as to bagsy them!
Thinking of ruining a perfectly good retro tourer and swapping out the friction shift 600's :oops:

The bike I was waiting for arrived yesterday! 3 weeks late!!! Unfortunately it is 7 speed though so these aren't ideal for it shame cos the old stem shifters are a little bit dated now to say the least!
