I had to remove a stuck cable out of mine and I slipped with the dremal cutting tool.... :facepalm: and made a bloody mess.

Looking for something nice looking, the older the better for 5/6 speed but nothing expensive, rear shifter only.

The one I have just taken chunk out of is a braze on type Huret.

cheers Brian.
