    $180USD, gah!

    This would make a cool homebrew project... I thought I remembered seeing a few interesting takes on this.

    Had one of those on my first road bike - a 50s era Follis; it used to be my dads old racing machine. Worked pretty well. Took it off in '84 when I turned it into my fixed training bike. Still have the bits somewhere...

    My '55 Peugeot has a Simplex Competition shifter which is of a similar design... they (the Simplex) can be bought quite cheaply although it's mate in the rear (a Simplex JUY 543) is a trifle more expensive to acquire.

    They actually work really well.
