You mean like on the old Schwinns?
Today the majority of shifters are either integrated into the brake levers (brifters) or as shifters located at the ends of the handlebar (barcons). Check out Sheldon Browns amazingly detailed website for everything you could possibly need to know.
I'm sure if you really wanted to go with the stem mounted levers, you could scare up one up on eBay
. You probably need to be aware of differences in stem diameters (Schwinn was known to march to their own beat).
This is Africa, 1943. War spits out its violence overhead and the sandy graveyard swallows it up. Her name is King Nine, B-25, medium bomber, Twelfth Air Force. On a hot, still morning she took off from Tunisia to bomb the southern tip of Italy. An errant piece of flak tore a hole in a wing tank and, like a wounded bird, this is where she landed, not to return on this day, or any other day.
