I just saw this thread and thought "I have opinions on this subject." Little did I realize I already contributed them. And six years ago...

Sadly, that bike is long gone, as are those moustache bars.

@Bandera, maybe I should try mine again. I'm building up my 1974 Raleigh International now, and I do have some bar end shifters that might fit in well.

Have at it!
It's a good excuse to haul out "obsolete" road levers & shifters for a different take on a proper '70's road machine.
Add some slightly useful accessories and a very loud bell: good to go.

Good on you.

No need to sell me on a bell. Every bike of mine has a bell. I ring them a lot.
