Sturmey Archer 3+2 Twinshift needed

Hey all, looking for a Sturmey Archer twinshift for a beautiful Raleigh Fireball I just aquired, either in working condition or parts. Current model I have is chrome with wood shift nobs- some necessary parts are missing, the most vital being the little arched piece of metal that eases gear transition on the 3 speed side. Any leads? Thanks for looking!

Can you send a pic of the shifter you need? I have one that is made for a muscle type bike. Large shifter with one lever larger than the other. Not sure if this is the type you are looking for. I will be gone for the weekend and unable to respond until Monday.

Hey Sierra,

Sorry i'm so late to reply. I don't have an actual picture to post, but follow this link-

It's actually picture of a Raleigh Rodeo, but the shifter, and the bike itself for that matter, appear to be identical.

Thanks much!

You may be able to modify the shift lever to operate in pure friction mode; it is very easy to find second gear, and of course 1st and 3rd are trivially at the extremes.
