I have a set of Simplex barcons that I put on my International, yes. I'd used them on a MTB > drop bar conversion some years back. They work just fine, although I had the impression that they took an extra bit of trimming with a 7-speed freewheel. I changed to downtube shifters on the International mostly for aesthetics.
