WTB: Simplex lever front derailleur

ISO Simplex (or Huret, I suppose) lever operated front derailleur for my '55 Automoto project. Something like a Simplex Competition. Need not be in awesome condition, just operational. I have stuff to trade, NR front/rear derailleurs, other stuff.

Simplex shifter

I have this Simplex Competition shifter NOS:
VeloBase.com - Component: Simplex Competition (wreath badge, plastic knob)
Also this Simplex Tour d France rear derailleur and shift lever NOS:
VeloBase.com - Component: Simplex Tour de France (wreath badge, SIMPLEX, plastic pulleys)
And a bag of NOS spare parts for the rear derailleur

I'd prefer to sell as a group as they belong together.

Thanks, but NOS belongs on a nicer frame than my Automoto. I won't even decide if it's a keeper until I build it up and try it (it's on the small side), and even if so, I might just wax it and let the patina shine thru.

Hey Skip

I have this Simplex S.G.D.G

I am leaving for a 2 week road trip in the morning. If you are interested I can ship it out tomorrow morning and work out the details later.

Thanks r0ckh0und . That looks like it will do the trick. Drop me an email (in my sig) and we can firm up details. (I turned off PMs, so BF won't let me send or receive them).
