WTB: mavic 8 speed rear derailleur

All,
Looking for a mavic rear derailleur to finish off a build.

Like the 840's but not sure if there were 8 speed.

Working with Simplex friction shifters so it shouldn't matter(?)
older Wheelset 8 speed a possibiblity too.

Respond by thread or PM.

Thanks,
Bambam

Then 840 were 7/8s..so with Simplex shifter, the rear der will have the range BUT the shifter will be way far aft to get to the largest cogs(lowest gear) since the RH shifter barrel is so small..Slant parallogram rear ders, like the 840/1..take more cable pull to move the same amount as a non slant parallogram rear der, like the Mavic 801...
