1987 Kestrel 4000

This bike features first generation SIS indexed shifting with Dura-Ace components which gained adoption in 1986. Prior to SIS, shifters all used less-precise friction shifting to move derailleurs from gear to gear. Indexed shifting allowed the shifters to snap in to place more precisely.
