I've got 1 or 2 white higher-rise Norco stems, same era if you go that way.
Love those dimpled Araya rims. Solid vintage gear, maybe the best of that period.

I think the women's frame of that time are about the equivalent of a 19" to 20" frame. I'm guessing it's a 73.
It should fit a 5'5" rider.

I'm seeing a few older Orbeas with similar haracteristics but they're hard to link to, mostly scraper sites. 2 cable guides and seat cluster are common on some bikes.

I scoff. They're truly awkward to change gears when you're in the drops, even if they are functional in other situations. That's a subjective opinion and I'm unlikely to ever change it.

Don't read anything into that. Shrinking is far less of a problem than stretching. Sometimes the rivets just pop from daily use and the metal is quite thin to boot.
