Retro Racer: Nuovo Record Question?

I am starting to put together the parts for my "Retro Racer" that I had discussed in this previous thread.

Racing on a vintage bike?!

I have two possible frames for this and various parts, plus newer parts that I will purchase. In the meantime I am working through some crazy possibilities and have lots of questions that you may be able to help me with.

How many gears can you shift across with a Nuovo Record rear derailleur? 6,7,8,9,10? What about 8,9 or 10 speed narrow chain on the older pulleys?

Thanks

I have shifted a standard 7-speed freewheel with no problems whatsoever. 8-speed cogsets take the same standard old-school 3/32" chain. I wouldn't hesitate to try an NR with a 9-speed cogset and matching "9-speed" chain.

only problem I can possibly foresee is if the narrower chains won't work with old and fatter DR pulleys...but pulleys can be swapped if that is the case. Aftermarket sealed-bearing aluminum pulleys like Carmichaels are super thin, guess they'd work with any width chain.

Either that, or simply stick on a pair of ShimaNO pulley wheels...

Stop complaining before I start cobbling together a Nuovo Frankenstine from various pulley wheels, pulley cages, bolts, adjusters, etc...

Does the Nuovo Record derailleur have enough range of travel to go across a 9 speed cluster?

I also have some C-Record "doppler" retro-friction shifters, do they pull enough cable for an 8 or 9 speed cluster?

Thanks

Happens to me too sometimes, problem is you can't really concentrate on things C&V while at work, can you (unless you work at the LBS, of course)
