Hi.
I have a GT Karakoram (1997).

The plastic cover on the underside of my left-hand (front) shifter is breaking/broken. If anyone has a shifter (working or not) for sale...

Or any ideas of something compatible. Ideally, i'd like to keep these shifters as they're pretty cool. I'm missing the little plastic 'window' too.

It's in the 1997 Shimano catalogue on RetroBike.

Many thanks.

I have one of these that seems cosmetically good but doesn't shift properly, could be ideal. PM me.

That's what I thought, had it appart but nothing obvious. I've had M739/M740's appart before and repaired them but it seems lots of Shimanos shifters are completely different inside.

Ross, do you still need this buddy? Want to know if I can delete my PM's or not and if I should be throwing it in for free with a full working set as spares. Cheers

Hi...sorry, DEVELOPMENT CYCLE... couldn't log in for some reason. I do still need the cover for the left (3 speed/front) shifter. Are you in the UK? I'm in (east) London.

Thanks for all of your help.
