ebay seller is not the original owner, she sold it some years ago. She rides a custom cabron frame from John Slawta (Landshark) now, a downgrade if you ask me!
Haha! Absolutely agree! Iíll have to be on the lookout for one of your half-fast back gems in my size!

Thanks! That was the economy version though. For a few special bikes, I made the fancier version of the half-fast, by capping the stay with an inverted tube. Extra work for no advantage other than looking sharper (to me, de gustibus).



For my wife's frame, I did those inverted-tube caps at both ends of the seatstays, and did them for the Chainstays and fork blades too, at the dropout. A stupid amount of work but it was a labor of love.

Not my cup of tea, but I know plenty of folks like these aluminum Cannondales:

Sorry, lots of artistic angles, no real "money shot."

^^^ Same seller I think, lower level model Cannondale.

https://chicago.craigslist.org/nwc/b...695834483.html

If someone's interested, I can take a look. They are pretty close to me.

Icky frame but full Dura-Ace 740x group.
Those non-aero brake levers are the best ever made, if you like non-aero. I'm surprised they made it onto the same bike as an 8-sp Hyperglide. I'd expect the non-aero levers on a 6-speed 7400 bike. Were they still making non-aero levers when 8-sp came out?

Just mildly curious.

^^^ I have no idea, though I think the 740x series was the prettiest Shimano ever produced, so much so that at one point I was contemplating using it on the frame I built in Doug Fattic's class.(*) When researching that possibility, I stumbled on this article on the evolution of the 740x series:

https://dentoncycles.co.uk/2017/12/0...tem-1984-1996/

It indicates BL-7401 was aero, but maybe the non-aero BL-7400 was produced alongside it for a while.

(*) I came to my senses and settled on a Campy 9sp drivetrain.

Interesting bike with good tire clearance. I only just saw it but it's been for sale for a while, I guess.

I think they might have been, since they had the 8 speed down tube shifters? Not sure.

As far as clickable DT shifters, the early 105s were bomb proof solid.

Nope, non-aero DA died with 7400. 7401, 7402 and 7410 were all non-aero.
But.
In the later 80’s Shimano made non-aero 1050 and 6400 series levers, which work very nicely with later single and dual pivot caliper brakes. Better than 7400? Mmmmmm…I would say not as pretty but they are compatible with SLR, so there’s that.

I think I know what you mean, but just to be clear, you put "non" in there one too many times, right? Or one too few...
Should be "7401, 7402 and 7410 were all aero"
Or maybe "7401, 7402 and 7410 were all NON-non-aero"?

Looks like a Gitane to me. Every Cuevas I've seen (in photos only) was FAR nicer than that.

I have a Cuevas custom, to my (not particularly educated eye) my bike does have some differences from this one.

Edit: Link to album of another Cuevas, pics for reference - https://www.bikeforums.net/g/album/32257854



My brake bridge is the same basic shape, but has diamond reinforcements with little windows (does have good tire clearance 32mm, just fits). The caps on the seatstays are very different, mine are scalloped. The lugs are different.
