Dropping this to $725.

This is a rare 1982 Araya 821 Aero bike rebranded as a Vista Professional Model "Aero Team" Aerodynamics road bike.

Fresh out of 25+ years in dry storage! From what i've researched, these were built by Araya as indicated by the serial number (ARYK161). They were built for a short time in the Aero Era to showcase the Shimano Dura Ace AX aerodynamic series group (original Shimano Aero Systems decal on frame) and Tange Aero multidimensional aero tubes (with original decal present). Very cool and surprisingly light for a bike of it's age.

Paint is original and in good condition, sparing some nicks and scratches here and there. No rust or cracks. One very very shallow ding on top tube from bar swing around (non drive side). To small and shallow to photo, but it is there and quite innocuous (visible in one of the pics). All original decals are present and look nice. Dropouts are Shimano with limiter screws. Very cool frameset. The Shimano Dura Ace AX group is complete and functioning well.

Components:
Shifters- Shimano Dura Ace AX aero downtube levers
Rear Derailleur- Shimano Dura Ace AX, 7 speed
Front derailleur- Shimano Dura Ace AX
Calipers- Shimano Dura Ace AX Paralel Pull
Levers- Shimano Dura Ace AX aero
Crankset- Shimano Dura Ace AX. 170mm standard.
Bottom bracket- Shimano Dura Ace AX
Pedals- Shimano Dura Ace AX Dyna Drive aero platforms with Shimano toe clips (not pictured). Also included are the pictured pedal axle adaptors and Shimano 6400 SPD pedals
Seatpost- Shimano Dura Ace AX aero (with original dust seal)
Stem- Shimano Dura Ace AX aero quill
Headset- Shimano Dura Ace AX 1" threaded (with original dust seal)
Handlebars- Scott DH Aero bars wrapped in original Vetta tape
Saddle- White Selle Italia Turbo, plenty of wear (the pictured Velo saddle is included as well)
Tires- tubular Hutchinson Tempo 1 and Clement Super Condor. They are holding air and without dry rot, but should be inspected and reglued before use
Hubs- Shimano Dura Ace AX (with original dust seals and skewers)
Rims- Araya Aero 2 rims look nice, but are for display only (cracks around eyelets). The bladed spokes and the AX hubs are excellent and ready to be built onto some new hoops.
Cables and housing look to be original.

Frame is 57cm center to center on the seat and top tube. Headtube is 6.5". Stand over is 32.5" as pictured.

This is one of the rarer models from the short aero bike era era. Very rare to find one in this condition with a full Dura Ace AX group. The bike is not a museum bike, it has been ridden. I have many more pics I'm happy to share. PM if you want specific pictures of anything.

Email with questions. I'll consider shipping to some international locations. Please email to discuss if possible and for an estimate. Shipping to USA 48 is $95 via FedEx ground, professionally packed and insured for purchase price.

$725
