Cable routing ideas for this frame?

Iíve got an old steel hybrid that will probably get a powdercoat but it was equipped with a strange Suntour rear derailleur that threaded into the braze on further forward from the dropout. Iíd be using a Shimano derailleur and Iím wondering if anybody has an idea for how to equip this frame with a housing stop for the rear derailleur housing, since there isnít one.

That's a SunTour S-1 hanger. @rhm has one, I modded an old CERA frame for him to add it.

Is that a Schwinn? When I converted a Crisscross I just added a clamp on housing stop. If itís like the one I did, there is a standard RD hanger under that guard.

ebay - select "cycling" for the category. Search "chain stay cable stop." You will find a dizzying array of them.
Your local bike shop is also a good place to look.

That tab brazed on is perfect to just bolt one to. Here you go.
