I got today a Miyata 912. All Shimano 600, except brake levels. The lady who owned it changed the original ones with safety brake levels.
But I still have a pair of Shimano 600 in the basement waiting for the right bike.
Pictures as I bought.

I bought this old 71 Schwinn for twenty bucks, and then threw a 700c/Nexus-8/hybrid wheelset on it to give it a try.

But I don't think it would work for me. It's just too big, or I'm too old maybe, to be up so high and all hunched over.
Might try putting the original chrome wheels on a slightly lower and slightly longer 80's Tange mtb frame if they'll fit. Fifteen speeds then.
And some more upright bars.
The old Schwinn's destiny is a donor.
