Schwinn Sierra rebuild

Hey Guys and Gals:

An old friend asked me to rebuild his Schwinn Sierra. It is complete and everything on it works but I am a bit concerned about the shifters. The shifters are Shimano Unishift controls 3 x 5 speed.

The upper housing is cracked on both of them where the shift cable housing is supposed to sit, so they need to be replaced.

Is there anything on the market right now to replace a 5 speed shifter bar mount thumb shifter?

A little research on line resulted in the Falcon friction shifters from several retailers and the Sunrace friction shifters from Rivendell. Anyone used either and have input?
