  1. Dia Compe brake levers. The original ones were named 290 and came in metallic gray but this is the newer black “two finger” type. Maybe the model name was 292? Year might be 1989-90.

    Attached at end of bars?!? Aaahhh, you single speed youngsters!

  2. AHahahahahaha, Ahahahaa The Campy seatpost comments are so funny, oh it just kills me to read them every week.

    It just never gets old.

  3. Yup, DC brake levers.
    Had ’em on my 89-ish GT Karakoram. They are steel, IIRC, as were the stem (purple splatter-painted to match), bars and seatpost on that brute!

What do you think?
