    Downtube braze on shift lever post conversion

    What has been used to make these look "finished" after you remove the multi speed drive chain and shift levers off a vintage bike race bike and convert to fixed gear?

    Keep at least the right one untouched so you can mount the shifter for the 3 speed fixed gear hub thats coming out soon!!

    if anyone suggests grinding them off, I'll sic the C&V forum on you. The right is for the S3x hub shifter, the left can fit a bell. Or a flower, if you're so inclined.

    Keep the bosses. Or give the frame to someone else.

    NO one will put a grinder to my frame. I understand that cosmetic schrader valve stem caps work. Just wondering if someone had figured something else out. Bell might be a good idea if I can find one to fit.
