Small parts needed...source?

My Dia Compe levers had only one of these unusual ferrules, with the little wire clip. (The other side had a lever mounted mirror and no ferrule.) I'm sure no one sells them, but would somebody have one floating around that they could part with? If not...where would I buy the standard version?

Secondly, I'm looking for some braze-on cable stops since I'm switching to bar-end shifters. The bike is a 1985 Nishiki Cresta GT. Will most any stops fit, or do I have to be careful what kind I buy? Again, if anyone has vintage stops laying around I'd be glad to strike up a deal with you.

You can PM me about the cable stops I have a couple of sets off Shimano alloys with adjusters I would sell at a reasonable price.

Surpised you have some with the clips I have several sans clips. Also as heads up for the OP standard Diacompes without clips will work.

Yeah, I have a habit of hoarding weird tiny harder-to-find parts.

These guys might be able to help:

Also,

Beyond that, eBay; a well-stocked LBS; or stripping them off of old frames.

I think that all that circular "clip" does is retain the ferrule on the brake lever body when the cables are removed from them, A regular one without the clip should work too, and there are lots of them out there, If you get the "clip-less" ones, just watch out where the ferrule goes every time you remove the brake cables and casings from the lever body.....
