parts in denver
while i have a couple leads on ebay, i was wondering if anyone had any leads on a shimano 3 speed thumb or stick shifter, locally. it is to go on an internal hub shimano 3 speed on a 78 schwinn trike. it is not a sturmey archer, which seems to be the more popular and reliable brand, trying to stick with what is on it already; a finely working hub and new cable, until i may decide to go sturmey at some later point. i understand the old shimano 3 speed shifters are no longer made and it is proving to be a huge pain finding a branded one, i may try a friction shifter to tide me over. also, would like to put a springer fork on it as well. spent all day looking at thrift stores and calling bike shops, and craigslist denver is a dead end for both of these as well. i could get the springer new, but would prefer used, that's why i'm asking here.
