    Dura Ace 7400 STI Shifter Repair

    Have an old 8-speed Dura Ace drivetrain whose right STI shifter has become inoperative. Issue is mechanical - no amount of cleaning will free the lever (it is not stuck from dirt.) Lever will need to be rebuilt and broken or bent internals replaced. Is there any place that does this kind of work?

    Would switch back to downtube levers but am disabled am brifters give me more confidence. The rest of the part group is so buttery smooth that I don't want to upgrade the bike to a modern parts group.

    Thanks in advance.

    Shimano shifters are not repairable. No parts available, and those who have disassembled Shimano shifters have learned that even if they had replacement parts they could never get the things back together.
