    1972 Campagnolo Bar-End Shifter nuts

    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.

    Thanks everyone,
    Tim
    Can anyone give me a ride from Monterey to Big Bear on Wednesday or Thursday?

    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:

    http://www.renehersebicycles.com/

    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?

    Thanks,
    Tim

    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.
