As the title suggests, Id like some 7 speed braze on downtube shifters please. Shimano indexed would be ideal. could potentially swap for 8 speed 105 downtube shifter depending on quality.

Im also after a front brake caliper with ridiculously long reach (i think 57mm+ was what i measured) Preferably silver to keep in with the bikes colour scheme but not sure i can afford to be fussy.

let me know what you have

many thanks

I think the Silver Tourney calipers would be suitable
Max reach 80mm
Either £15 posted for the set
Or £10 for the front
