WANTED: vintage Sturmey Archer grip shifter
I have been working on a 1970 Raleigh Sports "all gold" edition for about a month. I put it back together this past weekend and noticed that the gears were not shifting quite as smooth as I wanted them to, so I attempted to replace the cable in the Sturmey Archer grip shifter. Well, when I unscrewed the two screws holding it together, the thing popped open and apparently there was a tiny "diameter ball" and a spring that popped out when it opened. I looked everywhere for them on the floor and can't find them. Now I have this awesome bike that has 2 unusable gears, all because I had to try to get it perfect.
If anyone knows where I can get one of these, I would greatly appreciate it and thanks for taking the time to read this. (and to top it all off, the cable was not a standard brake cable, so that didn't even get accomplished)
