Newest acquisition a Breezer Ignaz X. Needs a lot of TLC to get it shiny again 8) Picked it up yesterdayevening from the dutch Marktplaats. Don't know yet what to do with it. Maybe change some components (it needs a Brooks saddle) or put it up for sale. Dumb question can a Nexus 7 speed hub function with a Thumbshifter?? Looks way better than the twister which is now fitted!

Lots of potential indeed.

Try it with a regular shifter. If that gives you enough range to get from granny gear to top gear, so will a thumbie. You might need to put it in friction mode if the hub's index is different though.
