The original FD was also a down pull type. The idea of the pulley is a good one, although it doesn't appear that that was the way the cable was originally run. Also, unless it's missing a seat clamp...

’79 Miyata Gran Touring that I foolishly sold with Brooks, and will never sell a bike with a good leather saddle again. It just doesn’t add the appropriate value.

I like the build of your bike. I've never tried a spindle spacer, but as mentioned, it seems an economical fix. I recently converted an '83 bike to 9spd without any issues except slow upshifting up...

That's one of the coolest things I've seen in a while. I've often wondered what it sounds like to pluck around on an acoustic bass. The sound must reverberate throughout the house.
