Classic Italian Shifters(4 posts)

I have a 1986 Bianchi Road frame that I'm looking to restore back to it's original glory.

At the time I used these really cool looking shifters and I guess the company is out of business.

I know they made pedals also. I can't remember how to spell it but is was something like "Geupeimme". I'm way off on the spelling...but maybe it rings a bell for someone.

Can someone help me out with the name of the company and maybe a link.

Loose Screws in Oregon supposedly is going to be back in business in September. They've been pretty good about finding stuff like that for me. when they were alive before; don't know if it changed when they shut down last spring.
