For years, those were my only Dura-ace parts. Now I have a set of D/T shifters somewhere and a rear hub.

Unfortunately, all my bikes worthy of Dura Ace have factory brazeons, so I guess nothing also.

I have some of those on my Moto. They came off a Shogun 600.




A benefit of flipping bikes is you can pull cool stuff off before you move it.

I have two NOS sets of Dura-Ave brake cable clips and no place to use them. Got a box full (10 sets) years ago most of which were used, sold or given away.

I hoarded DA7700 for years, and just put the STIís on a gravel bike with 9-speed Claris, adding insult to injury. After years of C&V, Iím not used to seeing the looks of derision from other riders, but Iím getting used to it.

Don't forget the Durace cables running through those DA guides!

The cable guides are nice, but I'm hankering for a 7410 seatpost and matching headset to finish up my DA parts.

Side note for Bamboobike4: do those Claris shifters work with old derailleurs? I see that Shimano has 8 speed Claris sti levers. Will they shift a 6402 rd(or 105 equivalent)?

Everything is out there, if you're willing to pay the price. I prefer the SP-7400-B aero seatpost for a little more "wow" factor.

Are you open to selling one set?

I am building up a bike With first generation DA. These would be a good way of tidying up the build.

PM me if you are open to passing a set along. I can pay via Venmo or PayPal.

Cool! But like others, all my DA bikes have braze-on cable guides.

I've got an almost complete 7410 groupset, lacking only headset. If I wanted to go whole hog, of course, I'd need the stem and seatpost. Oh, and a mid-90s frame to put them on.

Donít forget the DA 9-speed jersey.
