In answer to Marty's question - (long answer) - when I acquired it, it had Campagnolo (Super record I think) brakes, Shimano 105 indexed, 7-speed shifters, and all the rest of the drivetrain components and hubs were Dura Ace (not back for $75 smackers eh?). I'm building it up with the original Stronglight A9 headset, the Dura Ace crankset, the Campagnolo brake calipers, a set of well-used Chorus 9-speed brifters, a gently used Chorus rear derailleur, a 980 front derailleur (it's what I have on hand - ), Mirage hub/cassette, laced to Super Champion tubular rims. The bar tape, and eventually (I hope) the saddle will both be brilliant yellow.

I expect to use this as my "go fast" bike, and maybe will work up the fitness and courage to try racing with it.

vpiuva - it will be stealth - except for having "TREK" cast in the bottom bracket.
