Scored a lugged Bridgestone MB-3 tonight, and people keep throwing parts at me!

Picked up a purple MB-3 tonight, just the thing I needed for bombing around singletrack behind my work during lunchtime!

I asked the guy if he had any road bikes he was getting rid of over the phone and he said no, but when I arrived he handed me a bag of 6207 Ultegra parts! In addition he gave me the original thumbies and cantis he had replaced, the FD and chainrings he took off. Gotta love wrenches that don't just throw stuff away. It pays to ask!

He also gave me some drop bars, stems, an extra rear wheel and Exage aero levers. I'm toying with how to build it up really. I have mustache bars coming, so I have three bar choices (between those two and the risers that are on there) but I'd need to decide what shifters to use if I change bars. Bar ends could work if I do drop bars.

Any idea if I'm missing any parts for the downtube shifters in the last picture?

Thing is pimpin'.
