Simplex Criterium downtube shifter, hailing from France and in production during the 1970s. Made from aluminium/plastic and weighing in at 58 grams - pretty lightweight for a downtube shifter at that time. A fine choice for keeping your vintage bike authentic, but also great for any other compatible bike too.

If you're taking part in L'Eroica or a similar vintage event, this is fully compliant - so rest assured, the pre-1987 police won't lock you up for having the wrong shifter!

The downtube shifter's been carefully cleaned, thoroughly checked by one of our mechanics and graded as OK condition, but do take a good look at the detailed photos so you can see the cosmetic condition before you buy.
