Campagnolo Italian Thin cup pair NOS - ONE PAIR Campagnolo Italian thread thin cup pair NOS gorgeous. No lockring.  


These cups fit most pre-1968 Campagnolo record cranks, Campagnolo Nuovo Record Track bb's, Campagnolo Nuovo Record triple bb's, and mate with all other Italian width spindles that use 1/4 balls and require thin wall cups. Nuovo Record road double cranks use thick wall rifled cups, but even during the 1970's and 1980's Campagnolo continued to make premium spindles for road doubles that mated with these thin cups - so if you have a spindle for thin cups than these cups can be a real lifesaver.

Also, there were a number of later Campagnolo spindles that used thin cups, it is hard to name them all!  These cups were probably made in the 1980's, but they would work great and look great on your crank sitting on your 1966 Masi or Cinelli. So enjoy this opportunity. Perfect those who seriously tinker with classic Campagnolo equipped bikes

Campagnolo Gran Sport Normal Reach Brakeset NOS  

These have been selling like crazy. There are only so many left and so many bikes...  Fresh hoods, the awesome 1.8mm cables, so much Campy vintage goodness!

Campagnolo Top tube cable guide set - package of three with screws. - back in stock!

 

Campagnolo top tube brake cable guide set (3)
A pair of brand new old stock Campagnolo gran sport brake levers with old logo black hoods. The hoods are amazingly well preserved and are nice and soft. They are gorgeous.

While the hoods are nice and exceptionally soft, they are 35 or 40 years old, so we suggest that you don't buy these in order to get just the hoods as you can tear them if you try removing them. Use these levers as they are and enjoy.

Generic Gum Hood pair for Campy NR/SR levers.  So you have a bike that is a "rider", and you don't want to invest in exotic collectible rubber that will just degrade in the ozone. Than use these hoods. They fit just swell, they look OK, and they seem to last. They do have a not-so-sexy seam along the sides, but since they fit so well and work so well, these are hard to beat.

Genuine Campagnolo Gum hood pair shield logo NOS Campagnolo gum brake hood pair for Campy NR/SR brake levers. Soft fresh gum (well stored for many years).  Note that if you tear these on installation, you are on your own.  So remember to insert the back of the lever through the front of the hood and use warm soapy water.  These should work like a charm if you do it right.  If you pay the shipping, you can also send us your levers and we'll put them on as a freebie as we are comfortable putting these on for you.

Kool Stop padset for Mafac holders Red

Kool Stop Black padset for Campy NR holders

Kool Stop Pads for Mafac and also for Campy NR/SR brake holders (be sure to order the right ones).  The red compound is probably the best brake compound we've ever met.  The black is more traditional, perhaps not as good in wet and not as "stoppy".  But the black is awesome for restorations where you want a good balance between performance and classic looks.  So choose either for Mafac or for classic Campy, and then choose between black or the red.

Mafac pads set.  For absolute performance, go with a Matthauser type pad or something similar. But for restoration, these will work. They are old, so they are certainly harder than when they were new, but they should give reasonable performance. Note that these are genuine Mafac pads. There are vintage pads out there that look similar but which are much softer; so soft they can melt away if not careful. These original Mafac's are much better (but still not as good as modern pads).  Add to Cart
Campagnolo Super Record White Brake Cable Housing Pair. This stuff has become very hard to find. Came with some late Super Record sets we believe as well as for Cobalto and some Delta perhaps too. You get a front and a rear, and each is lined and has the original Campagnolo ferules. Cables are not included.  Add to Cart
A pair of brand new old stock Campagnolo Nuovo Record Brake cable set. Front and rear. Factory fresh, with unlined housings as Campagnolo supplied into the early-to-mid 1970's. These are the nice and heavy 1.8mm thick inner cables with the <c> on the head logo. The real deal.

2042 Campagnolo Nuovo Record Concave Bridge Washer Pair . If you are mounting a Campagnolo or other brake to a round rear brake bridge, these are the washers you need to make it fit correctly. These genuine Campagnolo concave washers are a tad more slender than typical ones, and they have a superior finish. Just as you would expect from Campagnolo. Of course, fine on Super Record also.  Add to Cart
Campagnolo Cobalto / C-rec hood plug pair. Just the hard-to-find plugs (the little things that block the top of the hoods when you use aero routing and not conventional routing). Kinda off white in color, as are all that we've ever seen.  Add to Cart

IRD Freewheel - assorted sizes IRD Freewheels in assorted sizes. IRD freewheels shift wonderfully and come in an array of sizes. There just isn't any other currently made freewheel that offers the array of options that these do.

They have gone through a series of versions as they sought to improve quality. The current version is Mark 3. Early versions of these were plagued by some quality issues. We have had some roughness on the latest batch, but the maker says current reliability has been very good and we've had no returns from customers we've sold them to! Plus, excepting cog wear, IRD will warranty without time limit these freewheels. The 5 and 6 speed freewheels are "wide space". The 7 speed freewheels are narrow space.

Regina Oro Track Chain bulk - about 2 to 3 chains Regina Oro Track Chain bulk -  Regina Oro Track Chain Madness! Not quite as shown in the picture (you are getting much more, but condition will vary).  Some chain is better than others, there is some corrosion and discoloration, and there are sections that are quite nice.  For this offering, we are providing 4 sections in the BMX length (including some master links too), two of which have isolated corrosion, and two others that have more pronounced issues in spots. A typical pile we believe, after some mixing and matching with a chain tool and perhaps some cleaning up, should yield 2 or perhaps 3 chains that are pretty nice.  Add to Cart
Regina Record S Nickel Chain.  This chain has a gorgeous finish and features drilled side plates. For wide space 5 speed or wide space 6 speed freewheels. This chain was a hot item for 1980's Campagnolo Super Record equipped bikes using wide space (also called standard) width freewheels.   Add to Cart

Campagnolo Nuovo Record Front Deraillieur Body Campagnolo Nuovo Record Front Deraillieur Body. This is the body for Nuovo Record front deraillieurs from about 1974 through 1977. Earlier ones didn't take the circlip, and later ones were more slender. But, this body will work for all Nuovo Record, Super Record, and Gran Sport front deraillieurs from around 1968 through 1986. You can use it to convert braze-on to clamp on (although the cage fixing bolt and nut is not included which you will need). The body does come with the circlip, so if you have an early 70's example which has play on the pivots, using this body with the circlip may possibly be helpful. There are precious few ways to dress up your vintage machine with gleaming Campy for such a modest price.  Campagnolo  Nuovo Record Front Deraillieur Body

Pretty cool.  Add to Cart

Hardware - Bolts and Clips and Binders and Things  
Campagnolo Bolts and Washers Set of 8 . When you are installing fenders or racks, it is nice to have high quality bolts around to do the job. The most common bolt on many bikes is M5 - both modern and vintage bikes use them everywhere. These bolts are genuine Campagnolo from the days of Nuovo and Super Record. They have a wonderful chrome finish and are much nicer than those you typically find at the hardware store. They fit things like dropout eyelets, waterbottle bosses, and much more. And when assembling your bike, there are many places to use these.  We recently found the washers here to go with these, so again these are supplied with the genuine Campagnolo washers.  Add to Cart
Campagnolo Quick Release Seatpost Binder Bolt. This is a handy item for sure - typically works wherever you would be able to fit a conventional Campy 8mm binder but you want flexibility instead. Also great for frames where the binder ears are messed up and the typical binder doesnt have a good area to bit into - this has big concial washer plates that grip the ears from the outside with lots of contact area. The binder is no lightweight - but it can be a real problem solver and a fun bit of Campy exotica on the cheap. We've sold these on ebay before at $40 - but this isn't ebay, its we hope a lot more fun!  Add to Cart
Campagnolo 1010A long droupouts with adjusters. Best of all, the price is wonderful! You get the front and rear dropouts and a set of the adjusters with the plastic ends. This is the model without eyelets.  Add to Cart

A package of three Campagnolo Nuovo Record Headset keyed lockwashers.  These washers are in gorgeous chrome.  They will work with any headset made for British or Italian keyed steerers.  These are exceptionally nice, and are great to keep around for anyone who works with classic bikes with threaded steerers.  Note that the photo shows 5, here you get 3.

Campagnolo 132mm Nuovo Record Rear Axle. This is the right length for 5sp and ultra 6. It could be "faked" to use with 6sp 126 but that would only give 3mm on each side which will work but is not ideal and we don't recommend it (you don't want to chew up a dropout). The axle is new, but is a take-off from new axle sets we split apart a long time ago. But it is genuine vintage Campy quality!  Add to Cart

Spokes (Vintage)
Stella 293mm vintage spokes 15 guage stainless 74 Vintage Stella Spokes.  What separates a good restoration from a great one is details.  Many folks simply use modern spokes, but to the discerning eye, that isn't accurate.  For some folks, it doesn't matter.  But for others, the details are very important.  So for those who really want it right, we are pleased to still offer some of these original items.

At one time we had perhaps the largest pile of vintage spokes in the world.  But now we are running on vapors.  We still come across fresh boxes as we sort our giant pile, so you never know when a different length might get listed, but the pile is only a small fraction of what we had.  Note that it just isn't practical for us to "search" for a given length.  The only way for us to navigate spoke world is to sort a batch and then list it.  Note that vintage spokes are typically no more expensive than modern Wheelsmith spokes!  Modern spokes are more robust, but for the top-tier restoration bike that gets the occasional ride, they are generally perfect.
