It’s a french frame, so it should have simplex retrofriction shifters regardless of the groupset. Also from a functional pov.
Full victory/Triomphe would be cool too
Not able to put together complete vic/triomphe from the campy parts bin.
Ooh, simplex retrofriction, not familiar with them, but looking through the parts bin I found this (top left), looks like the right thing ? (but I only have the one lever)
Is it worth the effort trying to find a pair of these, or are they very rare?
Not rare but sometimes go for silly money on the bay, also available under different brands but identical.
Thanks for that. If so, what other brands could I be on the lookout for? Never been a fan of paying silly money
Spidel, Mavic and Gipiemme all used the design, probably to get on the bandwagon as a lot of people thought they were the best friction shifters of all....
+1 on this
