So I just picked up a gas pipe Raleigh, an early 90's Mercury. Steel rims, a crankset with the two chainrings and arm riveted together, quality stuff. And then there's the suicide levers.
By that I mean the levers on the inside of the drops that actuate the standard levers. I want them gone, a lot. They're sitting on the extended pivots that the normal levers use, but they're held on by what looks like brass washers, and the ends of the pivot bars bent over to hold the washers on, trapping the suicide levers. Any ideas on getting them off?
