They look good. :)

Will they work without the clamp? I need braze on ones.

There's a few NOS non-indexed shimano down tube shifters somewhere in at my work in Melbourne CBD. I work there on sundays..... :roll:

Pretty sure they will RK, I'll check them after work and let you know.

I have previously converted 2nd Gen Dura Ace shifters to braze-on. I had to punch out a stop-pin fron the lever though, and use some Campag washers from memory. It isn't entirely straight forward, but I can be done.

Looks good :) The clamp has two removable posts that mimic braze ons, fitted me Tamari frame fine, if a little fiddly.
