Shimano Experts... What The Hell Did I Just Buy?

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Shimano Experts... What The Hell Did I Just Buy?

I've been in the market for a new derailleur to handle an 8 speed conversion. I found this one on eBay with no bids, 5 minutes before ending, and figured what the hell... The seller said that these are "fd-1055 and rd-1055" front+rear, but I have never heard of those models before. I'm not too worried about fit, anything between 7-9 speeds will work with my drivetrain; just was wondering what the heck these are!

Cheers,
V

You did good. I would have bought them for that price.
