I picked up a cheap small Puch bike for my lad last year and it's now time I spent some time building it up.

It's a five speed 20" rear wheel which I don't want to replace but I'd like to give him an indexed shifter.

I'd ideally like to get my hands on a 6 speed indexed shifter as that will do the trick nicely. Has anyone got one in their spares box that they're prepared to part with for not too much money?

Alternatively, a Shimano 7 speed shifter won't be far off indexing wise (particularly if you've got a spare old style Dura Ace rear mech too :) ) or pre-2001 9 speed Campag will be close with a Shimano rear mech.

Can anyone help me get the bike going - it's only the RH rear shifter I need. I'd also like a set of hidden cable brake levers for small hands. Can anyone help here too?

my g/friend found that Shimano aero levers are much smaller than Campy FWIW

as far as I know, there aren't any indexed levers for less than 7 speed. I might be wrong though!

I have some shimano 7s indexed shifters for 10 euros posted, if you're interested, see item number 3 here: http://www.retrobike.co.uk/forum/viewtopic.php?t=194390

cheers, Andy
