Does Shimano make down tube index shifters for 8,9 or 10 speed(130mm)? Or was the 7 speed(126mm) the last? I'm thinking of building a NOS 2nd bike(trainer/rain) with the look of friction down tube shifting and the convience of index.

A very cheap way to go 10 speed.
If you have an 8 speed wheel, all you need is a 10 speed cassette, a 10 speed rear changer ( maybe ? ), and the down tube shifters.
