Yes - I'm 99% sure that Nuovo Record would have been supplied with the 50th - perhaps someone can confirm?

Your Velobase link is for a Nuovo Record - see the `thick' cups with the rifled `spiral'.

Just to be a little more clearer than the previous description - the thick cups mean that the ridges on the axle that locate the bearings are closer together than on the thin `Record' BB.

To make a call on the headset, I need to see all the individual parts - the Athena . Chorus / Croce and C-Record sets of the late 80s look pretty similar, the 50th came with a Super Record style - not sure if all the engraving was identical.

Finally - I've attached a 50th advert from September '83.

Sorry - the attachment looked like it had uploaded OK, but I don't think it had.

You'll find the ads here in the Classic Campagnolo folder:

I've found some close ups of the 50th group - definitely a Nuovo Record BB with the satin finish on the axle similar to yours.

Cheers

Thanks.

Do we assume the headset in the 50th set was also nuovo record?.

The headset would have been Super Record. I'll try to send through a direct mail with the close up shots of the group set..
