Nishiki International derailleurs

I started with the frame and fork and am closing in on putting this Nishiki International (KS324163) together. I'm hung up on the derailleurs. From browsing earlier threads I see this needs a rear derailleur hanger, but the well worn Suntour VGT Luxe I bought came without one. Will any hanger do or do I need to find one that is specific to this bike/derailleur? Additionally, will any front derailleur do?

Thanks, Scot

As far as I know, the replacement steel derailleur hangers were pretty universal. I am quite certain that any Shimano, SunTour, etc.front deraileur will work. Nice bike !
