One of these great shifting units, but this one discounted due to notable blems on front face.  It will work just swell - maybe you can even touch it up should you care.  But otherwise use and enjoy and save....

 

A great fun item.  We've been wanting a no-nonsense long cage rear derailleur for a wide array of bike builds for quite awhile.  And we were just lucky enough to find a small stock of Shimano Deore rear derailleurs that fit the bill wonderfully.  These come to us builk packaged, so while new there may be some minor  shopwear.  But the great thing is the derailleur is new so will provide thousands of miles of wonderful use! .

 

This derailleur goes back in time quite awhile - our guess is probably late 1980's and was designed for 6 speed we believe.  As we understand it, this should actually work with quite a bit of Shimano indexing 6, 7, and 8 speed stuff.  We figure most folks will run these in friction.  But with a bit of research you should be able to figure out if it might work with an indexing system you have or are thinking of (we aren't as expert as we should be on the Shimano stuff).  But our understanding is that this derailleur is quite versatile.  

 

The finish is quite nice on this derailleur.  The front face that says Deore is a more textured finsih though which is a bit less snazzy.  But all in all this is a nice workhorse rear derailleur that will be handy for a great number of builds (or race bike conversions to something climb-friendly).
