    That is a rare find and a beauty!

    However, I DO cringe at the Japanese rear derailleur. Velo Orange sells a $26 Simplex that is not plastic and would match nicely with the rest of derailleur system.

      Thank you for the compliment.
      I agree that the derailleur situation is a strange hybrid, but the Suntour has 3 things going for it: it fits, it works very smoothly, and it’s free. Never did switch to the upright bars, so the rest is original.

    Love the paint on this! My next bike will have to be orange.
