    I had Suntour Superbe side pulls on there for a long time. Later switched to Gran Compe. The combination of tires, fenders, and a front rack never really worked with those sidepull brakes. Nor...

    Well, a first generation Record derailleur is a good find at any rate.

    On this frame... can you identify the bottom bracket threading? Fork threading? Dropouts? Seat post size?

    Yeah, that's basically what I'm thinking.

    As you say, Compass has what you need to braze to the frame, to fit Weinmann, Dia-Compe, MAFAC, etc. (not Paul) brakes. It's tempting.
