Howdy, I have an old bike with a SIS derailler with the hanger attached. I want to upgrade beyond a shimano tourney. I was told that I cannot put another derailler on the bike unless it has the hanger attached...like the tourney. It doesn't make sense to me that I couldn't put a hanger on the bike and attach any derailler that I want. Any thoughts if this makes sense

Those adaptors should be readily available; I have one on my home-built recumbent. Costs a couple of bucks.
Claw adapters can be had from:

thanks, i am having a little trouble finding it on that website. is it called something other than a claw adapter?
Try part # SU-550I SunRace Rear Derailleur Hanger. Might be 'zero-one' or 'Oscar-India' in the part number; the fonts in the paper catalog aren't clear.
