Where did 19 of those come from?

Are our brifters becoming serious collectibles?

NOS is cutthroat. I'm looking for an 06 TCR Advanced in 56, saw a NOS one on eBay... Dude wants US$3700 for it, even though the FC-7800 has been pinched and replaced with a FSA crank. Brutal.

I have 3D printed versions as well. Found the plans online and a buddy of mine printed them for me.

you can find 3D printing companies online that will print and ship them to you fairly cheap. Just have to send them the file.
