Just curious whether there is any date code stamp on those early 600 calipers?
The brakes are a complete/front & rear set of calipers and levers and appear to be the very 1st generation as they are stamped "Japan 57
" opposite of the "AE
" which should put them at May of 1976
I wanted to confirm that at Cuda2k's Velobase
but he must be working on it because the site was down....
I have no appropriate use for them and listed them on ebay. I'll send you the link when I get home if you'd like ?? (Can't do it on computers at work)
Basically, I want 80% of this stuff gone so I can spend most of my time riding my own bikes this year in the beautiful Rockies and racing TT's in the Master's group. I am commited to narrowing my collection down to a very small "core" group. I love outfitting the college kids and making them happy but I am very tired of flipping, bored w/ dealing w/ sharks, don't enjoy thrift stores like I did 5-10 years ago. These last 2 years, I feel myself evolving as a rider and want that to continue.
Most importantly, I have lost 36 lb in the last 2 years!!
I owe that almost exclusively to riding vintage steel road bikes and 80's MTB's...
