    Derailleur Repair

    Dear Bikeforums,
    I found a pretty good looking early90s suntour suberbe pro rear derailleur in the trash today. Only problem is that the cage with the pulleys and everything is missing. Is this replaceable? What would be a good replacement if it is? It seems like it is, as there's an allen bolt above it and all.
    thanks,
    jake

    Pulleys are no problem, you can pick up generic ones for $10 or so. The cage might be trickier... there's no standard way of attaching the cage to the derailer body. Try loosescrews.com for random derailer parts, maybe?
