Welcome to the Night of the Living Thread - everybody give a warm welcome to our new Thread Necromancer Graham C who brought back from the dead a Sheldon Thread for us!
Well, certainly you could upgrade to Exage!
There are options here. There's plenty of perfectly good 7-speed index shifters out there, including stem shifters, MTB bar shifters (SL-TX30) and road drop shifters (SL-A050) - all available for $10-15. It's possible that by respacing your frame and rear hub to 126mm, and changing your RD to something more modern (might not be essential, but that Exage sure is better than your Crane!) you would be able to shift indexed over a 7-speed freewheel.
