Beware!! The only simplex/spidel derailleur I've seen like that is in my basement w/ a broken off brazon & the 80's Peugeot bike it came on.

I don't know if this is a common failure, but a friend saw a similar bike in the same condition.

I was given the bike which otherwise is in very good condition. The easiest repair would be to replace the original w/ a clamp on derailleur.
