What thread are the little alignment bolts in my rear dropouts?

It's an MB (Dronfield) frame, 753, Campag dropouts I think.

I presume they're metric... M3 perhaps? Any ideas on a replacement - one of mine is bent and the other is missing...

M3 would appear to be the case:

These are actually some of the best-value ones I've seen on t'internet; in this age of vertical dropouts on new-build bikes they seem increasingly harder - and dearer - to come by. Genuine Campag ones go for silly prices on eBay (20-odd quid a set at times!!).

Nigel at CampyOldy has proper ones with metal end caps for about £8.00 I think in both long and short variants.

Good question! They are M3 - I got the longest stainless M3 machine head screws I could find (35mm) off ebay for about £1.50.

The Billys ones arrived, they were about £2 or £3 I think, and they come complete with the little spring bit as well, so *recommended*.

Thanks for the info Team Retrobike!
