I believe I will take the path of least resistance, this one.

Although, I would like to see the original set-up in action.

Thanks all, mystery solved.-J

The original FD was also a down pull type. The idea of the pulley is a good one, although it doesn't appear that that was the way the cable was originally run. Also, unless it's missing a seat clamp...

I’m a B-17 fan.

’79 Miyata Gran Touring that I foolishly sold with Brooks, and will never sell a bike with a good leather saddle again. It just doesn’t add the appropriate value.

I like the build of your bike. I've never tried a spindle spacer, but as mentioned, it seems an economical fix. I recently converted an '83 bike to 9spd without any issues except slow upshifting up...

I should have taken a better picture of the Dia Compe NGC 450 centerpulls. They are pretty cool.

That's one of the coolest things I've seen in a while. I've often wondered what it sounds like to pluck around on an acoustic bass. The sound must reverberate throughout the house.

Those Dura Ace indexed barcons are great for just about any drivetrain. They recommend 7700 RD in indexed, but that XT RD is working well indexed.
