    In 1989 the 7-Eleven team rode Eddy Merckx frames according to my reference material. Huffy was used in 1988. However, the 8 speed parts and brakes used by the team in 1988 were prototypes. Consequently, the 1989 parts best represent the components used by the team.

    The Dura-Ace components are; FD-7400 front derailleur, RD-7402 rear derailleur, SL-7402 shift levers, HD-7400 headset, FC-7400 crankset, BB-7400 bottom bracket, BR-7402 brake set, FH-7402 freehub set, CS-7402 cassette, SP-7400 seat post and PD-7401 clipless pedals. Only the equipment ending in 02 was new for 1989.

    Other equipment used by the team were: Sedisport chain, Cinelli Volare SLX saddle, Cinelli handlebar tape, Cinelli 66 handlebars, Cinelli XA stem, Wolber Profile 18 rims, DT 14/15/14 gauge spokes, Wolber Champion de France SPI tires, Avocet computers and Specialized bottle cages.

    If you are interested, I believe that I have the shift levers in excellent condition and the saddle in NOS condition.

    The 7-11 team "Huffy" bikes were Serotta-built and badged as Huffy. Dave Kirk (http://www.kirkframeworks.com) built the frames while he worked at Serotta.

    I don't think Dave built the 7-11 Serotta frames. He did work at Serotta though.

    I remember back then that the big deal was 8 speed. Shimano, Campy, Suntour, Mavic, were all on 7 speed freewheels the year before. Shimano came out with the freehub concept which is universal now and they were the 1st manufacturer to bring about 8 speeds. It was a big deal.

    Shimano also had 6 and 7 speed uniglide freehubs.

    Sydney, is correct. The Shimano freehub goes back to 1976 (5 and 6 speed) and has been consistently in the Shimano catalogue since that time. 1988 however, was the year that Shimano introduced the 8 speed freehub in the pro peleton. It become available to the public in the following year
