Hi CR folks,
A 1951 frame arrived today that needs a cable operated front deraillieur. Must be French. The rear dropout is asking for a Simplex or Huret I believe and I have those in good supply here. I know that there were some production Huret fronts that operated by cable, and perhaps some Simplex (not sure, there were pre-war for sure and in 1956, but not sure about the period inbetween). Possibly some others exist as well.
I'll pay well for something that is ideal. Also, it needs to take cable housing. I have the 1956 Simplex cable operated front, but its a bit too new I think.
Options or suggestions are certainly appreciated.
Thanks! Mike Kone Boulder CO
