Didn't Suntour offer a top mount shifter that bolted to top braze-on? Would such a mount be had from that? (Although, I don't know what the wrap around is on these shifters. : ) )

Hey Bob: Do you mean the braze-on? That was a kit made by Gipiemme, I bought them from Strawberry on Portland many moons ago. It was a machined block that was brazed in place, then a stamped stainless piece that attached and acted as stops for the shift lever travel. You can fabricate something like that using standard campy shifter bosses and plate. But I bet that's not what he is asking.....?
