WTB Shimano 7sp SIS Bar End Shifters (or flat mount DT)

I am converting an 80's Motobecane from drop bars + DT shifters to flat bars + thumbies for an older friend.

I purchased the Paul Components Thumbies mounts to use with SL-1055 DT shifters, but did not realize the shifter's curved mounts would not work with the Thumbies.

Does anyone have a set of SL-BS50 bar end shifters, or another option that would allow me to achieve 7sp indexing with my Shimano freewheel and my RD-1055 rear derailleur? Flat mount DT shifters should work fine as long as they can index to 7sp.

Many thanks!

Two minutes and a belt sander turn a curved mount into a flat one.
10 minutes and a file.

You know it's going to be a good day when the stem and seatpost come right out.

(looking for a picture and not seeing it? Thank the Photobucket fiasco.PM me and I'll link it up.)

Currently sold out at Rivendell, but think these would also sold your problem, correct?


If you can’t find them elsewhere, I do have a set of 7 seed barends to sell.

Any of these solutions would work, I would think...the third option gives you some levers for parts.
