Another oversight is thinking I had enough outer cable on hand for 3 brakes and 2 shifters. I don't deal with bikes with front derailleurs so it looks to me like the cable gets routed under and around the Bottom Bracket to the front derailleur.



*NOTE* Even after notching the brake caliper I still had to cut out a segment
on the bottom brake pads. I had no movement otherwise. Having the correct
calipers would have negated all of the mods.

It's finished. There is a couple more things I'll end up changing and adding later but with the dead line looming, I have done all I can. It was overcast most of the day and was not able to get the bright sunny pictures I want. Tomorrow I will take final pictures for the finished thread.
I figured out the front derailleur with help from one of my LBS. The inner cable is not what is pulled but the outer housing is. New to me but that's how the bottom pull derailleur works.
I also changed out the long neck and narrow handlebars for a pair of OG '68 Sears Spyder handlebars from the Ramcharger bike build. The chrome was not perfect therefore the need of the handlebar wrap.
Test ride went well. It rides smooth, breaks and shifts great! I have not rode it and changed the Overdrive Selector yet so I can't tell what that is like yet.
