I have re-threaded Simplex bands to acecpt Shimano indexed downtube shifters. The bands lack the square boss, but the curved base against the downtube holds the shifters in place well enough with a little very careful tightening of the mounting screws.
I don't know if this will work with the Sun Tour gear, though.
You know it's going to be a good day when the stem and seatpost come right out.
