Cannondale road bike-change position of gearshift

My mid-1980 Cannondale Road bike has a dear shifters on the down tube. is there a way or a website that has parts to be able to move that shifter mechanism up to the handlebars?

Nothing fancy needed, just to shift the clicking mechanism from the down tube up to the handlebars and I am hoping there is a simple part available to convert the front and back shifters to the handlebar.
