Campagnolo Record in "Century" Finish
Don't hold your breath waiting for a NEW OLD STOCK Campagnolo Record gruppo in the rare "Century" finish, a dark grey anodized finish that was offered for only two to three years, to show up on the market again. This gruppo is currently on ebay (item 330683659841).
The owner, Richard Sachs (yes the framebuilder), writes, "I have owned these parts since they were new and it's time to let them go. All of these components are in perfect shape, have never been used, and are in the original shipping boxes. Only the derailleur carton has any wear and its interior is a bit torn. But the contents are perfect. All of the contents in the eBay auction are perfect."
The gruppo appears in the 1991 Campagnolo catalog and was only offered for two or three years.
What's in the gruppo:
1. Record Century Crank Set 172.5 42-53
2. Record Century Delta Brakeset (cables are in the box, still blister-wrapped from Vicenza)
3. Record Century Derailleurs (the front is a braze-on type)
4. Record Century Headset (English threading)
5. Record Century Small Flange 32 Hole Hubs
6. Record Silver Seat Post 27.2
7. Record TBS Pedals (toe straps included but not showing)
8. Record Silver Down Tube Levers (cables included but not shown)
9. Record Bottom Bracket Assembly (English threading)
10. Record Alloy 8-Speed Cassette 11-24
11. Rohloff Chain
