I get a complete NOS Campagnolo centaur groupset at once. It seems incredible to me how many NOS parts are still available after 20 years or more. In addition the seatpost is 27.2 what I was looking for. I am a happy man today :D

This time was on ebay and just 2 bids :shock:
I was starting to collect Centaur components for a new project (always starting from a poor condition frame). But I think an oportunity like this I must take it.

Excellent I think it's one of the finest looking group sets, just edges my next favourite being Suntour XC Pro :)

Ever since they released that road group called Centaur a few years back I stopped searching on eBay because everything that came up was for the road group, how stupid do I feel now!

My favorite group, congratulations on finding a NOS group. Not a big fan of the Bullets but if you can score the thimbshifters you will be set.

Completely agree, it is hard to find centaur on ebay, mainly are road parts.
I am not familiar with the Campagnolo bullets. I assembled my first and last Grip Shift in 1995. I do not want to imagine the bullets in muddy conditions.
