HELP! Looking to buy old Shimao 200gs Thumb Shifters

Hello all,

I have an old Performance Aurora mountain bike that still serves me well. I really like the bike but I need to replace one of the thumb shifters. It's an old Shimano 200gs thumb shifter. Does anyone happen to have a pair of these in decent shape for sale? I really need the left side shifter/brake lever unit, but would buy both if you have them. I've looked everywhere and I can not see to find them. Any help here would be appreciated!!! Please PM me if you have these!!!! Thanks!

I replaced mine with 7-speed Shimano Alivio shifters. They're not the push-push shifters like the 200GS, but I think you might like the more updated push-pull RapidRires better.

Another vote for the Alivio shifters. I switched to these over a year ago and I'm very happy with them. Your LBS should have them for not to much, I think I paid around $40 for the pair, installed.
