    It's a good thing you pointed at it. Otherwise, we would have had no idea what you're talking about.

    It's a concave washer and you can gently pry it off with a screw driver. There will still be brazed on shifter posts, they're just part of the frame.

    Ok, lets give him the benefit of the doubt. Remember, we all have been down that road earlier in our lives.

    You can buy bolt on covers such as these. If you grind them off, then it will make it more difficult and less elegant to mount shifters on the frame in the future, and it's fairly likely that either you or a future owner of the frame will someday want to use gears. So please don't grind them off.

    Just adding to that, if you fit shifters mounted on the handlebars, the cable adjusters go on those mounts.
    I had a good bike ... so I FIXED it

    its probably better i keep the original and not ruin the bosses, it will look nicer if/when someone adds shifters
