Iím sure that it will!

Yes. And for the record, the wheelset on the bike that was "exactly like this" was nothing like this set. It was a fine older dirty Campagnolo wheelset.

Another package of vintage goodness from the amazing collection of @Mad Honk!
This time an assortment of new Benelux repair parts.
If you have a Benelux shifter, derailleur, or hanger that is in need of one or more of these parts please let me know and I will send them gratis in the spirit that they were sent to me.

@Mad Honk, I tried one of those derailleurs. I had heard they don't work well. I found that to be true, but it was still surprising how bad it was. It auto-shifted frequently for no apparent reason.

I've converted '71 Bob Jackson to a triple and needed some small parts to make it better. These are not quite from the post. But went to my LBS and picked up a SOMA cage (with an additional drilling the mechanic at Cupertino Bike Shop does to make them work better) and a "thin" English Threaded NR adjustable cup. It's great that I can this from the LBS, but unfortunately they didn't have a thin English threaded fixed cup. The mechanic is going to check his personal stash at home to see if he has one.

...does the other end of the string go to a tooth?

I got this stuff. I also have a flat bar project, but it's modern enough to involve internal routing of brake hoses. The brakes I'm using came bled, more's the pity. But I ain't got time to bleed!... for a few days anyhow.

That coupler looks like its going into a brass fitting, may not need any tape, I usually do it anyway.

Have you formed an opinion on it yet? Does it mate up with a Garmin or Wahoo, or is Cateye different?
