    Shimano parts will have a two letter date code that can be decoded somewhere on
    here: . Along with answers to other
    vintage bike questions you'll have.

    The OP (M Santos) asked me to post the following on his behalf as he's
    having problems with his news server.


    I want to thank every one who responded, you've all given me useful
    information. Special thank you to dtmeister for giving me the means to
    share a few photos (there are 3 more links below).

    I thought of craigslist, but in my rural corner of the country I doubt
    I'll generate much interest. I'll probably end up doing something on Ebay, I
    need to get 800 or so out of it...I know, I know, slim chance with Dura Ace,
    but maybe somebody out there is really hot for this frame.

    (Anybody out there know somebody who fits that description?)

    Thanks again for your help

    ***I apologize if this shows up more than once, my news server is acting
    strangely and doesn't seem to want to post this message.
