I knew it - you're buying up every flite there is, then planning to conquer the world somehow through their use.

There's actually 2 kinds of Tourney, TX and TZ, i think one is 5/6 speed and the other is 7 speed but i'm not sure.
The way shimano derailleurs go is, the plastic rubbish on K Mart bikes (i can't remember what it's called and can't find it on google), the 2 Tourneys, TY15, 18 and 22, Altus, Acera, Alivio, Deore, LX, XT, XTR. Or in road bikes from TY, 2300, Sora, Tiagra, 105, Ultegra, Dura Ace.

Just noticed this Paino http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/telaio-mis-5 ... 1e733c97f4

But is in Italy, so maybe not a Sydney Paino. Or if it is, it must have an interesting story.

Hey! I used to commute on something like that! (before it was retro) Same battery chugging bottled glowworms too. Deer Park to Footscray, no bikelanes, no lid. Ahh memories...
