There are dura-ace 9spd downtube shifters available. I don't know where you're looking. Even Amazon sells them. They sell anywhere from $70 to $100.

I use the pitbull lock also with a very heavy chain lock. Had someone mess with my bike once. They played with the locks a little, then gave up. They did take a snack I left in my handlebar bag.

This guy would probably get long with guy that built the propeller bike. And you know people who build stupid bikes like this, don't think about safety issues.
