Its all very strange to me. I, as does Jerry Moos I think, have 1974 NOS first generation Dura Ace equipped Flandria road bikes. Checking the parts on my bike with the first Dura Ace catalog, as posted on Mark Bulgier's site, seems to confirm that each part is 1994 first generation. However, the front hub has NO codes stamped on it at all, while the rear has an R D stamped on the barrel.
