icemilkcoffee Thanks for the input. In response to a few of your comments:

1) Indexed bar ends are my preferred shifter but this project will be staying friction shift, possibly relocated from DT to stem.

2) I've ordered a set of dual pivot, Tektro 539's for this project. Lever compatibility is indeed a concern. I plan to use the same Dia Compe reverse levers shown in the first photo of my initial post. They currently route the brake cables along the bar and out to dual pivot ultegras so I'm hoping that I'll be okay there.
