Down tube shifter bolts

Had one break off in the braze on. Once I've drilled it out I can refit the lever but where do I get the bolt?! The lever is Sachs Huret 1990 - looks fairly generic so are they all the same or am I going to be looking for ages?

    Braze-on bolts are M5 x 14 or 19 according to Shimano Tech Docs. M4 might also come into play.
    I've added a signature to prove it is still possible.

    Thanks for that - I know Shimano were used on the Galaxy at the time so no reason to suppose the Horizon is any different. Still, I have a plan which will be to visit Recycle in Leeds who will probably have something lying around!
