my friend has 8-speed Campy Veloce, and the left/front shifter has broken internals. Theoretically, you can rebuild these, but parts for 8-speed Ergopower aren't very common.
Wanting to keep the brake hood shape the same, he is currently using the lever for braking, and a down-tube shifter for front shifting.
Does anyone have a functioning left/front 8-speed-era Ergopower lever in their parts bin? Doesn't need to be Veloce.
