    Rear Derailluer question

    I am thinking of putting some more modern parts on an old Ross that I as given. I was wondering if there are ay adapters out there to be able to attach a more modern rear derilluer to the old sliding dropouts without a derailluer tab such as the one in this picture.


    I appreciaate any help you can give. Thanks!
