I picked these up at a local used bike store for $5 and I can't seem to identify them. The part that baffles me are the clamps. I've never seen Suntour shifters with a hinged clamp before. The rear shifter is 6 speed indexed or friction. What do you think?

They obviously pre-date these ones (I have for sale right now), but I don't know what the equivalent model would have been in the preceeding groupset, sorry

Cheers...Nick

Those look like Suntour XC7000 grouppo. I have the same on my 1987 Panasonic MC-6500 MTB.

I'm not sure that right (but please prove me wrong with some pictures). Suntour launched their indexing shifting in 1987 with the Accushift SL-5000-CH shifters and the clamp wasn't as sophisticated as this. The pictures aren't great but you'll see what I mean http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/190883571513? ... 027wt_1083

I've been digging into this for my own project and Suntour used the same shifter mechanism over a variety of groupsets but they changed the clamp to keep costs down on the lower end stuff.

Your shifters are the same as Melvin has on his 1987 SM800 http://www.retrobike.co.uk/forum/viewtopic.php?t=9424 i.e. SL-XS00-CH's
