My 58 or 62 Mercian is lacking its original drivetrain, which has been replaced with a hub gear, so I'm looking for:

Double chainring and cranks
Braze on levers
Cable operated front dérailleur
Rear Derailleur

According to the Mercian catalogues, it would probably have been Simplex. Mercian also suggest Campag.

Anybody got anything suitable and affordable?

I have front and rear Campag Gran Sport gear mech from the early 60s. A bit scruffy but very serviceable. I also have a pair of bar end control shifters to go with them but the only 60s down tube shifters I have are the banded type. This was all going to go on ebay soon but I'd be happy to avoid that. I can send pics if you're interested.

I think I am now sorted on derailleurs and levers. Now just need some suitable cranks and double chainring, late fifties to very early sixties. Anyone? Campag Gran Sport? 49D? Any other suggestions?
