WTB: Shimano 7-Speed (Indexed) Bar-end Shifters

Trying to assemble all the components to convert a Suntour-equipped drive-train (1990 Bianchi Volpe) to one which is Shimano-equipped. I have, thus far, a pair of Alivio front and rear derailleurs, and a Shimano 7-speed 13-28 freewheel. What's missing are the shifters... bar-end shifters. Sure, I could (and can/do) shift in friction mode, but I want the freedom to choose indexed shifting, "when and if".

C'mon, don't be shy. You're not getting any younger, and you can't take 'em with you.

FWIW, you can get 8s bar ends and use an alternate cable routing. Derailer Adjustment

You could also buy the pods and just use Suntour indexing downtube shifters with your present rd set up: Silver Bar End Shifter Pods Mounts (Pair) - 17068

I have a 7s set here in top (nearly unused) condition for $50 shipped.

howdy - i might interested in the second set of Shimano 7spd bar ends someone offers. I'm running my 8-spds in friction, at the moment. but if I have the 8-spd in my box o stuff, it gives an excuse to build another bike! (if the folks who posted the two steel 58cm(ish) frames would ever respond....)
drop me a note. thanks.

I might be 3d on this. I actually just need the pods as I have the shifters. I have a bridgestone RB-1 which badly needs bar end shifters as that is what it came with originally. The riv pods only work with shimano shifters if you use the special spacers that runs the cost to $45 for the pair.
