The top-mount Suntour Symmetric shifters mount on a braze-on block on my early '80s Schwinn Super Letour. They can be had from eBay store andysbikes.com, $5 opener, 2 days to go. However, the options are to bolt directly to a braze-on or use the Suntour "endless" stainless steel clamp. I don't believe the Suntour unit can be modified to take other brands of levers, though.
