They always seem to be closed when I come to town, but I scored a Super Record rear derailleur in the box for cheap. I tried telling him he could get more online than the asking price, but I still...

Neat! I'm glad this is too small for me, though I also own one very similar to this. If I had seen this a few days ago, I might have considered picking it up anyway, but I picked up a French frameset...

They are nice riding bikes and a good candidate if leaving it alone and locked up. It is one of my favorites. I own two. I'd pay a fair amount if I could ever find one well stored and NIB.

I'm not sure, but I would probably look at Ebay auctions and try to determine if I can find a side that is showing more damage, to try and determine the likely thread direction that way.

I've been casually watching for one of these in a roughly 23" and red/black colors for my brother-in-law. It was his childhood bike and he wants one, but had a rough year.
