Thanks! The brake levers are a late model Shimano 600EX (#6209)...details on velobase:

(I was actually trying to replace the hoods on the original non-aero levers--also Shimano 600ex (6207 I think)--and I ended up finding these on ebay for $10-15 less than the hoods alone...so I upgraded...I guess.)

The rear derailleur is a Suntour XCD 6000 accushift (longest derailleur name evar), an "upgrade" by the first owner from the original Shimano Deerhead. Looks like this up close:


I don't use indexing on this, but it's flawless in friction mode.

The FD is the original Deerhead (old XT).
