Shimano SB C102 shifter/brake part

I have a Trek 700 on my hands that has a Shimano SB C102 brake.shifter combo which is a grip shifter with a weird dial indicator for the gear position. The cable connecting the shifter to the dial is approx. 9" long and has 2 ball ends. Any chance of getting a replacement?

If you have a relationship with a dealer or pro mechanic, he might scavenge it from his junk bin of broken shifters. Otherwise a dealer could call Shimano's tech support line and they'd probably be able to supply it.

A weird part like that from a lower end bike that old - I don't like your odds of sourcing a replacement.

I'm thinking, however, that FBinNY has a lot more experience than I do so maybe there's a chance that he knows something that I don't.

i used to have a set of these in the shop somewhere. My customer wanted to put light and meter on his handlebars so he had the weird analog gear indicator removed. Haven't seen them in a while, don't know if it had been thrown out. Anyway, some bike shops may have an old one or a damaged one which you can salvage for parts.

I'm sure I know things that you don't, and vice versa.

I doubt he'll find the part new, but these were sold in decent quantities, and many dials cracked causing the lever to be replaced. That means that under some workbench there's a few in the "junk levers" box someplace.

I don't know if younger mechanics do this anymore, but old school ones, knowing that parts would be hard to find kept damaged stuff in junk boxes, ie RDs FDs, levers, brake levers, calipers, etc. as a source for scrounged parts in the future. This was SOP when I came into the industiy in the sixties, and I can't tell you how many times our mechanics came up as heroes because of those junk boxes.

The CI-deck dials were an optional accessory, so I think they should be in stock somewhere, check with Google or Bing.

Yes, there are some on Ebay but since they look dorky, I will just remove it instead of replacing the broken cable.
