Gear Shifters

Shimano SL-MT62 Thumbshifters, 7 speed indexed, and these have that hidden 8th click, or you can run them on friction, still one of Shimano's best ideas they did away with :facepalm: , The logo on the front (right hand) top cap shifter has worn away, and has a couple of tiny dents on the plastic logo cover, I suspect its where I have turned the bike upside down in a moments madness to fix something :facepalm: :D :D, left hand shifter is very nice condition and a little autosol (other brands available :facepalm: ) it would be a stunner !!! anyway, everything functions perfect, :D Sold at £ 25
