    WTB: Ultegra 6500 components

    So, I've finally decided to build up the De Rosa with Ultegra 6500 and Dura Ace 9 speed with other down tube shifters that will work. Not the best out there obviously, but its affordable, available and bombproof. I politely request that the components be in very good to excellent condition. Here's what I need

    - Ultegra 6500 Rear derailleur -- Found. Thanks Flog00!
    - Ultegra 6500 front derailleur braze on -- edited. Now looking for 105
    - Ultegra 6500 Italian BB or Dura Ace 7700 -- Found, thank you!
    - Ultegra 6500 calipers - Found. Thanks Bikmore!
    - Ultegra 6500 Octalink Cranks - Found. Thanks Bikmore!
    - some down tube shifters that will work with this set (Dura Ace SL-7900) -- Found, thank you!
    - Shimano BL-R600 brake levers -- Found, thank you - Found. Thanks Flog00!

    EDIT: I'm also intereted in a Dura Ace 7700 9 Speed rear, front derailleur and calipers.

    Thanks a lot everyone and an extra big thank you for the forum members who have made offers. Your effort/help/advice is very much appreciated.

    For 9 speed downtube shifters, this is the best I found.

    EDIT: Oops missed that they are sold out. I must have emptied their bin.

    'This is a lot cheaper than retail.

    EDIT: Teach me to not read the ad. Stupid ebay ad. Not Dura Ace and not Italian. Still this is about $15 more and UK shipping is usually not too bad.

    Yup. I installed one on my Lemond a couple months back. Very nice BB.

    I have the Italian BB (Octalink) and I have 6500 calipers.
    I have the RD, as well, but you don't want it, scratched up.
    I have a 600 aero seatpost. As you know, they are all fairly short.

    9-sp DA DT shifters will not play completely nice with an Ultegra RD, but probably pretty close.

    The only other DT shifters in 9-sp I know of are SunRace, polished chrome. Indexed R, friction L only.

    To me, the ideal polished 9-sp , for value, is:
    Ultegra crankset, last pretty Shimano spiders.
    5500 or 6500 BB (DA Octalink BB's are lighter, but not as durable)
    Ultegra or DA calipers (both polished, both nice)
    105 FD (polished) followed by DA (polished) and third, Ultegra (satin cage)
    SunRace DT shifters
    Ultegra RD
    Whatever 8/9/10 wheelset you want, tons of Ultegra 6500 and 6600 hubs out there, laced to lots of nice rims.

    For about $100 more, you can probably go all DA, in which case:
    Crankset is very prone to scuffs, rings are anodized brown, which flakes off.
    Calipers, FD, and RD and finely finished items of prettiness.
    Shifters are available, to play nice with the RD.

    I have that group, but the price would reflect market...
