Hello from Ashland MA - Shimano Nexus Question

Hi,

I've been riding off and on since I was little. I've never been into dropping lots of cash on latest and greatest new bike. I'm more into fixing up old beaters. My current project is an 80s Peugeot that I'm adding a 4 speed Shimano Nexus rear hub to. The problem I've hit is I can't find a RapidFire 4 speed thumb shifter, (they don't make them anymore).

Here's a picture of one...

Anyone have any suggestions where I might find one? (no luck with Ebay or HarrisCyclery)

Any alternitives I can use?

If I was to just use a friction shifter, could this damage the gears?

Thanks
Charlie

Hello Charlie--stop in at the Classic & Vintage forum and ask this question. I know someone will come up with one for you. Bring pictures. It's mandatory .

Welcome to BF!
