Hi fellow retrobikers,
I've got some parts I want info on.

First, I have an old roadbike with dura ace brakes on it (levers+actual brakes).
I think they must be the oldest dura ace parts I've ever seen in real. I searched hours to find a pic of the actual brakes. The levers look like this:

And the brakes like this:

Second, I have a shimano 'fitlist' rear and front derailleur. Never heard of it but I guess these must have been nice BITD, because they're on the same bike as the dura ace brakes, and seem to date from the same era.
The front one also looks a lot like a 1st generation dura ace deraileur. I also have the downtube shifters. No pics to find of these parts, and also no other info.

Third, I have on this bike a crank which says 'SR' on it, and only that. I think they could be Sakae Ringyo cranks, but look a bit like sugino supermaxy cranks. I like the looks of them. Aha, found something that looks just like it, it's the second sakae crank: http://images.google.be/imgres?imgurl=h ... s%3Disch:1
There's still a difference: mine haven't got a spider. The chainring attaches directly to the arms. Otherwise it looks exactly the same.

And fourth, I have on this bike a stem that says '3 ttt' on it and drop bars with the same engravings on it. These seem very nice.

I think these parts all originate from the early 70's.

What I want to know is:
-if I sell any of these parts, what price should I ask? (condition: used but still looking and working good)
-all other information available

Thanks on advance for possible info, and thanks to everyone who didn't bother reading this mess :D .

Hi, I think you're correct about mid '70's period. The rear mech will be a 'Titlist' which is similar to the pre-Dura-Ace 'Crane' rear mech but with more steel parts. I have one in my shed which I used a lot in the '70's. I've not seen the centre-pull Dura-Ace brake calipers but know from Velobase that they existed.

You will also find information about TTT bars and stem on Velobase but look for 3T if you can't find TTT. They were (are?) a well known Italian manufacturer of these parts and very popular as an alternative to Cinelli. I have several pairs.

Regarding the chainset, can you post your own photos? The link you've given from Velobase is very indeterminate as to which chainset you're referring to.

Mmm, that link doesn't seem to be working... :?
You'll have to go to page 70, and than it's the second SR crank you see.
Hope you can find it, because it seems I can't get the link fixed and am unable to post pics because I haven't got a camera. :(
Thanks for the info so far! :D
