    Your link doesn't work but I found the bike anyway. It appears to be made of Reynolds 531 steel. Nice looking bike for $140.00

    The bar end shifters were originally designed so that sprinters could change gears while in the drops. But, the design quickly found favor in with the touring bikes.
