Hi and thanks for your reply! Well, ideally I would like to get an oldish Suntour deraileur hanger and attach it on the wheel axis/nut - so where one would usually attach it. I'd need an adapter 'claw' (I think you call it).
I'd remove this one on now.
can't see why it would be a problem. Most older frames used derailleur hangers anyway-from my experience it seems it was only very high end frames or later 50s/60s frames that seem to commonly have built in hangers in the dropout. I would have thought any later derailleur would work as long as you are running a 5 speed rear block so as not to get into issues with dropout widths etc.
