I'm looking for some sort of adaptor so I can use Campag Ergo levers on a road frame built for standard downtube shifters..........anyone know of such a device?

Sure I've seen something but can't find a set locally.

It would be some sort of outer cable stop thingy which bolts to the braze-ons originally intended for downtube shifters :?

why would you want to move away from downtube shifters? They are dangerous to use and you need to use the force to find the right gear which makes them retro cool :lol:

Beat me to it Rob, I too have a buckshee set that came with a frame, but was superceded by the ones that came with the groupset.

But I'll not fight you over it since you are a Karate Killer- even though I am sure you use your powers for Good...
