Araya Road 821…a beautiful bicycle, and yours is 100% original configuration. I owned one back in the early 1980s and recently bought a used example and restored it. But it is Dura Ace 7200, a bit more refined than first generation…I think you could call it 2nd generation Dura Ace. I say, if you’re riding it regularly, you’re better off with 7200.

I remember your posts on previous threads about the Araya Road 821. Mine is not really ridden that often, so it's going to stay mostly original for now. I did change the saddle for something a bit more comfortable.

18.5lbs is an impressive figure for a bike from any era let alone the late 70's

I think I'd take that number with a massive grain of salt.

Ouch! I think of Veloflex Crits at ~230g as way light. I find it tough to imagine anything lighter on normal roads.
