Isn't this an oxymoron? ;-)

(/Pace/, Francophiles)

Leaving aside the issue of functionality, aesthetically I really like the pre-Delrin Simplex bits, particularly the period with the black and gold badges, like these shift levers <http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=7210820960&rd=1&sspagename=STRK%3AMEWA%3AIT&rd=1>, which have now soared beyond my post-Christmas budget (thought they haven't escaped my lust), thanks to our Japanese brethren.

Excelto hubs, also. Have a beautiful pair from the early '60s with lovely engraving.
