SunTour Symmetric LD-2350 Friction Shifters


From VeloBase:

"A short lived innovation from SunTour, the Symmetric shifters mounted to a single braze-on boss similar to a water bottle mount.  When the rear derailleur lever was moved, a cam on the inside of the shifter body also adjusted the trim on the front derailleur.  It has been confirmed by multiple sources that the trim feature on these shifters do, or at least should, trim the derailleur when moving the rear derailleur in both directions.  There is a lengthy discussion of these shifters on, including detailed photos of the assembly.

I took great care in disassembling and reassembling these shifters. Your bike frame does require a single, centred downtube braze-on to mount this shifter.

All of our vintage parts have been disassembled, cleaned, inspected, polished and reassembled with lubricants. They are ready to install.
