I am in desperate need for the two little lock nuts that go to Campagnolo bar end shifters from the 70's. I believe they are from 1972, but i think they were all the same for awhile, so any period correct nuts will do. Here is a link of the shifters from velobase. See the little chrome nut? It goes on the end of the bolt that the shifter pivots around.
You guys are the best, and I really hope someone can help me out. Maybe we can work out a trade if I have something you need.

Why not take the shifter apart, take the screw down to the local auto parts or hardware store and see if you can find a stainless steel nut of the same thread pitch? You could chamfer the end with a file and polish if you had to.
Those things are difficult to find.
Try Mike Kone at Rene Herse bicycles:
He's usually real good at coming up hardware like that. He's helped me finish a lot of projects with tough to find original nuts, bolts, cables, etc.
Or as said before make your own, it is just a nut.

No luck with Mike at Rene Herse.
I've found some nuts that look like they might work. The nuts that go on Suntour Superbe brake pads and old Dura-Ace brake pads look the same, but I need a hand.
I don't actually have the shifters so I need someone to measure the threads and diameter of the bolt the the nut goes on. Can anyone help me out?

As Rabid K suggested above, I've managed to rehab a pair of Suntour barends to work with a not too unpleasant looking stainless steel acorn nut I picked up at ACE. Sort of looks like a pimple on the side of the shifter, but since the nut is new and shinny, it is tolerable. I'll look for some pictures.
