1986 Eddy Merckx Corsa Extra

Found it for a great price. Went with full Dura-Ace 7400 and i'm glad I did because it can take a beating. The geometry and tubing make it such a pleasure to ride, I feel the bike almost steers telepathically.

looks like a mix of 7400 and 7700.
the crankset is definitely 7700, as are the brakes.
good looking bike!

Nice! Doing up my own spaghetti & rice job as well, Colnago Super to DA 7410 gruppo. There was a bike up on my local CL that had the same set-up yours came with, brifter for the rear derailluer, dt shifter for the front. The seller says it's because he shifts the rear much more than he shifts the front, seems kinda odd to me.

I've heard from other people that the brifter/dt shifter was used in climbing stages, by Armstrong and the like, just to save some weight off the bike. Also because the trim adjustment on the earlier STI shifters sucked.

Such a classic,even in that color scheme. Good to see good geared roadies instead of fixed.
