    There are lots of guys selling made up ones with old Hurrett clamps that have shimano stops screwed ont to them. Problem solvers makes a nice clamp on stop but they do not have adjusters. I think they sell adjusters that will work though.

    From the first reply I am now not sure what you want.
    Bracket is the term that puzzles me.

    If you need a clamp on downtube double cable stop for a place to end the cable housing from the bar end controls to the frame, then yes, Campagnolo, Shimano both made these in reasonable quantity.
    The show up on ebay often.

    Options:

    1) Problem solvers bracket (no built in adjuster)
    2) SunTour bracket, cheap but you will have to find one (no built in adjuster)

    Add inline adjusters to 1 or 2. Go with 1) for a more modern bike. 2) for a more classic. If it's exotic Italian, you might want to find a campy one, but that is $$.

    or 3) the Huret clamp with downtube stops installed. This is the most expensive and nonsense option in IMO.

    Now that I am using the correct nomenclature, I also found this Origin8 stop.

    Along the same lines, how about a cable stop solution that utilizes existing braze-on shift lever mounts?

    It would look quite ugly to have the braze-ons just there and install a clamp over them.
    Time waits for no one.

    Sure, heaps. Just search for "downtube cable stop" using your favorite search engine. Shimano used to include a pair with aftermarket barcon or STI kits, not sure if they still do.

    Yeah, shimano still includes the stops with bar cons. You can buy them separate too
