I really don't see anyone making shoes like the Avocets any more; that's why they'll probably have to pry them from my cold, dead feet!

If that is an early 80's bike, it looks like it had Suntour rear derailleur and either Suntour or Sachs 5 speed freewheel. Any 5 speed compatible chain should work.
