Meet the grocery getter

I've been itching for one of these since I saw one. This one actually came up locally. Now I need to sell the Peugeot.
It rides great.
Does anyone know anything about these old derailleurs?

Beautiful! I love the integrated headset. Now you need to add some way to carry the groceries.

Bracket is different but the reflector looks the same. Is yours a Cateye?
Yes, who made it? I just got some old parts from a Japanese bike and it has the same reflector on the fender. This bike had some French parts like rims.

There's a rear rack with folding wire baskets by Pletcher (?) I'm looking at. Wald also makes the same thing with canvas liners for the baskets. Then I'll come up with some kind of a shallow box for the front. Some kind of portoure arrangement.

It was the integrated HS that clued me in

That's one interesting and cool bike. I think I wouldn't mind finding one myself.
