I just took ownership of an early 90's steel Bridgestone 26" hybrid bike that had been spec'ed w/ "moustache" bars and indexed mountain shifters. The purchaser had been used to drops, and had the dealer swap the bars, but with no shifter bosses brazed on the only option available at that time was shifters that mounted into the ends of the drops.
I obtained the bike from the original owner who gave up cycling at 90 years of age, and want to re-fit it with flat bars and non-integrated mountain shifters (the brake levers are fine).
Do these bar-end shifters see use anywhere? Do I throw them into my scrap parts bin or are there folks looking for these for some special purpose?
