Will the rear derailleur attatch ok?
If the front is indeed a band on, will I be ok to shim it if need be?
If the front derailleur is a braze on, is it possible to get adapters so that they can go on in a band on type style?

Cheers

Yes - should be OK. Standard fitting if frame has mech hanger, otherwise separate hangers available. Front mech bands come in 3 sizes - 28.6 should fit steel frame, but obvious thing to do is measure tube diameter.

I'm using rear and front 105 derailleurs on my old steel bike - no problem at all.
