Custom made one but if you find a road bar end or downtube shifter and could mount it to the bottle cage mounts it would look very similar

I can machine a custom mount or machine the exsisting mount of an end shifter so thats not a problem really,

Well i had an idea of doing this:

you would have to drill a hole in your bar for the cable routing, but yeh try it should work
