Vintage Huret shifters?jpeezer

I was recently gifted a cool old vintage motebecane lugged steel frame with suntour and Huret components. I had never preeviously heard of Huret. Getting a little overzealous with the cleaning of the bike, I stripped the shifters (downtube) off the bike w/o having looked at how they go back together. If anyone has any info on Huret components or links to sites that do have info please lt me know. thanks in advance.

I can't help you directly, but Huret shifters and derailleurs were pretty standard on a lot of bike-boom era bikes, like your Motobecane. You might go to your local library and check out some of the 70s-vintage bike books--I'm sure you'll find some drawings in at least one of them.
