Raleigh 1980's Super Course 555 part compatibility
I found a mint condition Raleigh 1980's Super Course 555. All the stickers are still on it even the stickers that are normally removed after purchasing. I want to upgrade the components but im having a hard time understanding all the new lingo the cycling world uses. if it were about valve systems for paintball guns I could ring your ear off. Ive searched this forum and have read allot but 99% is still jiberish to me, for alls I know I have read the answer to my problem 4 times already. Im wanting to find what modern day components can be switched out with my original components (Im a pack rat so I will be holding on to the originals)
Can yall point me to a topic I can read, or a website that I can check out?
Starting with the down-tube shifters... friction shifters are no fun, the indexing shifters on the modern road bike are nice. What would be the key words for the style of components I would need so that can Google/research- I need a line to follow
