I've gone the last 8 years with two. Cane Creek SCR-5 brake levers (bought cheaply) controlling Paul's Components Racer...

I wasn't born yet when these were originally released, but I imagine they carried more than their fare share of lightweight girlfriends... The type you don't want your wife to find out about!

I always suspected that the ones with brazed-on centerpulls and without chromed lugs were 76-78.

I'm still loving my '77 in silver, which I believe is one size larger than the OP's.

I'm going to have to telephone Bike Warehouse about a set of these Suntour derailleurs. But only between 7:00 and 8:00 a.m., because I'm a cheapskate.
