Yes! That looks like full Tricolor 7 speed. Easiest and cleanest way to do it is either get a set of 7 speed (Shimano, Microshift) STI's & a pair of downtube cable stops and just replace the DT shifters and brake levers. OR, replace the freehub with a later 8-9-10 speed unit and get later 8-9-10 speed shifters, cassette and chain.
