General Information
No model number found on levers or body. Model number given is a best guess.  Works with 74XX series Dura-Ace rear derailleurs (and some Mavic 8sp!).  The Dura-Ace 8-speed STI brake and shift lever combos (brifters) came in 2 versions (scooped out and non-scooped out levers). The problem is that the 7400 series brifters do not have a model number stamped anywhere on them to designate the difference between the 2 types. It is believed that the scooped-out variety is lighter and is a later version such as 7403 or possibly 7410. I have uploaded photos of the back side of each type. The scooped out version is shown new in the box, partially obscured by the plastic.

Details:  

Shimano's top of the line race quality component group in the mid 80's through the early 90's.  The 7400 series Dura-Ace group saw several interations including the introduction of 6 then 7 and finally 8 speed SIS shifting.  Eventually upgraded with 7410 parts before finally being completely replaced with 7700.

Dur-Ace was developed to give the professional racing cyclist a fraction-of-a-second advantage that can spell the difference between victory and defeat. Advanced functions like 8 speed SIS, Super SLR brakes and Shimano Total Integration provide the most refined feeling of control available in a group today. Ultra high-precision mechanisms, quality materials and rugged construction assure that Dura-Ace takes all the punishment that pro-level road racing can dish out. (1991 Dealer Manual).
