Need Right Replacement thumb shifter for Shimano Mountain LX 7-Spd
The 4 'pins' on the base of the right friction shifter sheared from a 'Cruiserfied '89 Bridgestone MB-4.
A replacement shifter would be ideal. Suggestions on compatible replacement options would be appreciated.
Plan C would be to simply epoxy the old shifter to the base to serve the same purpose as the 4 'pins'. Worth a shot or bad idea?

here are a few links on ebay. http://www.ebay.com/sch/Sporting-Goo...=7+speed+thumb
Expensive little bastards. But those old MB's are rad, I never should have sold mine.

I have a set of 7-speed XT thumbshifters that I'm about to put on ebay. Also have 1 extra shifter (XT, IIRC), without the base, just the shifter + 4 pins -- I think it's the front shifter though. Will have to check.

I may have a 7 speed thumb shifter from an old mx6. It is all plastic, though, not metal w/ rubber. So it's a bit flexy, but would prob. work. PM if you are interested.

I have a pair of old Suntour thumbshifters, I'll check to see if they have the 4 pins. I would like to find a good home for them. they inspired a lot of fanatic devotion. They guy who sold them to me had 30 pair he was hording.
