Got this 84' Comp TA from RobbieTunes as a frame / fork / headset . This build I wanted to come close to stock as I could . Robbie got the frame from a small independent bike shop , I think it was in Indiana . Anyhow after a few phone calls to the shop owner to try and get the parts I gave up , he was a very nice guy and all but I got the impression he didn't want to mess with shipping and listing the stuff to me and pricing it all . So the hunt began for parts , the Comp TA used Shimano 600 6207 for all the shifter / brake / headset bits the wheels were Suzue hubs with Araya rims all black ano with black nipples . Very good looking IMO . I think I'm going to give the Indy guy a call to see if he still has that wheelset , he told me it was tubular . I really got educated on the DT shifters , 6208 SIS does not work .
This was the picture and nomenclature I was working from , thanks @fleslider .
Centurion Comp TA

Here is the finished bike as it sits now , gotta' get that wheelset

By now, most people think I change all my bikes to modern stuff.
Well, lately I've not been doing that, with some (gasp!) friction bikes in the herd, some Campy Syncro (double gasp!), etc.

Nice paint, lined lugs. I do need to put the rear axle adjusters back in, I suppose.

1985 Bob Jackson Limited Edition. 53cm ST, 54cm TT. Campagnolo dropouts/fork ends, Haden lugs.


Cinelli steering, Shimano 600AX post holding a Prologo perch. Modolo brake levers.




DA 7400 RD, modified with a longer cage. Specialized compact triple crankset, square taper, uses the DA7400 BB just fine. Suntour Mountech FD.




DA7400 2/3 x 6 shifters. Veloflex Masters on Mavic Open S.U.P. CD rims.




7400 calipers with OEM pads. Reynolds 531 Professional tubing.




Suntour Mountech FD, 7400 pedals with L cages. Note the barrel adjuster is Campy. I'm looking for a DA version.




DA 7400 hubs, rear is a 6sp DA freewheel 12-24. I did not remove the freewheel to clean those inner spokes. I'll have to do that.




Fizik wrap. Unk bottle cage, with a lower bolt that is reamed. I'll work on that with an EZ-Out reverse thread screw.








Haden made the lugs, I believe.

Very kind words, Mark. Same color as my Comp TA and Merckx. The 80's were such a competitive time, at least for the bikes I like.

Pretty neat-O!

BTW, Rustines hoods for SR brake levers fit 7400 non-aero levers perfectly; even come in black.

Say-wheat! Red and shiny. Fricton shifting compact triple. Easy to find a gear you like. That looks like an enjoyable ride. Well done. Could that be the SOTR ride? I guess I am going to bring 3-4 bikes and decide when I get there.

Appears to be a cage swap with the 6200 series.
Came to me as such. Sorry 😐

Yes. It is a genetic mutant and a crime against humanity.

I currently have access to a CNC machine and 4 3D printers. One of them uses carbon fiber. I will try to get some stuff like this and some jockey wheels made. I need to design a cool name/logo to put on them. These are high schoolers working in CAD classes. I will start with basic projects to see how they do.

@retrodude - exceptionally nice Marinoni and excellent clean-up on Schwinn.
