    I'm the same. A 22 suits me better than a 21 or a 23, but that size is tough to find in a mass-market 3-speed.

    Side note here that may not be either here nor there. I love the bronze-green color...

    Any hope of finding the original owner, letting them know the fate of their bike, and getting permission to make it yours?

    I'm guessing he thought Schwinns and Raleighs had no class. ;)

    With indexed shifting, let's start with the shift mechanism. It is built to have a number of clicks. 4 clicks for 5 speed, up to 8 clicks for 9 speed (I've never gone higher than that). The number...

    I'm 5' 9" and have "average" leg length. 58 cm may be a little larger than ideal, but the proof is in the riding. I have a 58 cm bike that I have and like to ride, but 55 cm is my sweet spot.

    Back in "the day", it was pretty common for people to be fitted to larger size frames than is the current practice. A modern shop would try to get me on a 53 or 54 cm frame, but I ride 55-56 cm...

    Sun Tour jockey wheels are much more durable than the Simplex, and they fit - if you want to keep the original derailleur. If you want reliable, easy, inexpensive and pretty nice shifting, look for...
