It is possible to make it work by using two of the 3 speed SA click shifters. The original shifters didn't work very well anyway. I believe they were originally made from plastic and had a life expectancy of about 10 mnutes. I have about the same year bike and used the two shifters for a number of years. Roger

For an S5 hub a 3 speed trigger on the right and a friction thumb shifter for the left is "Plan A"
