Questions, what do I do about the lettering that is coming off? Should I just gently rub/scratch it off (it comes off pretty easily leaving the good basepaint underneath) or just leave it and keep waxing it like I have?

And I am not sure what the best front derailleur I should use. It has 7 speed shifters (the deore LX) and a 50t big chainring. The FD-r443 doens't appear to be as compatible with the 7 speed as I hoped it would be. Shifts but I had to leave some slack in the cable.

Any idea what the factory derailleurs were used?

I have no idea what year it is either, any clues?
