Rare Sportman Derailleur

Reader Jeff H was kind enough to send these photos of his rare Sportman derailleur. Offered for only a limited time in the 1960s, this is a seldom-seen item. Other than the lackluster styling and build quality (this was not a top-of-the-line item), the most interesting feature for us is the location of the limit screws at the top of the derailleur. This was a departure from other Camy derailleurs, which to this day have the limit screws on the body near the cable fastening.

Jeff's Sportman, by the way, is currently for sale on eBay. Check it out here.
