Positron was Shimano's first indexed derailleur series but used an indexed derailleur instead of the indexed shifters of more modern designs. Since it was the Positron derailleur that indexed, these are actually friction shifters. However any friction shifter won't do. The cable that controls the derailleur is a rigid wire, and needs to be anchored at both ends. Positron shifters have a bracket that the special cable attaches, to give a "push-pull" operation.

These shifters are in excellent condition (8.5/10). There is some minor corrosion on the plated cable stops but the stem band and plastic is in top condition. The H-4-3-2-L indicator band is included. These are "ten-speed" shifters and include the left lever for a two-ring front derailleur.
