Beautiful job, Greg at Cyclomondo, is great to deal with, highly recommended, and this is one location for simplex/Huret brake cables,

but you may have to write, as his sight says no shipping from Canada to US, so here’s another,

Filing cable ends is cheap and easy - do this. If you make a mistake, go buy another $2 shift cable at your LBS. I have done this for every pair of Retrofrictions I own without issue.

Drilling out the world’s best friction shifters that are no longer made will ruin their value and, if a mistake is made, completely ruin the shifter. I know you didn’t recommend it first, but I saw it mentioned a couple times in the thread and thought it worth mentioning. Not worth the risk IMHO.

OP - nice job on a beautiful build!
