Shimano Dura Ace ST-7700 STI Shifters: 9 Speed Double Non-Flightdeck - Engraved Faceplates V1 (EXC-Near Mint)
Clean example of the first version 7700 Dura Ace shifters, without Flightdeck compatibility. The main visual difference the faceplates. This v1 has metal faceplates with "Dura Ace" engraved. Later, this became a shinier and more fragile plastic with laser etched logos Tough to find! Includes original inline gear indicator.
Excellent to near mint condition with low miles! They shift perfectly crisp and reliable. Lever blades are close to perfect, with the only real wear to note is a few scratches on the ends and minimal microscratching. Left faceplate is near mint with only a shallow 2mm dent towards the nose. Right faceplate has some scuffing spots in the center. The only real wear is paint scuffing/chips on the lower edges of the grey plastic housings around the faceplates, but you could apply some touchup paint and these will look nearly new. Hoods show no wear. Touch up the painted plastic and these will be worthy of some show bikes. Or, ride them as nearly fresh shifters!
