In 1978 the Campagnolo range was C-Record, Victory, Triomphe and 980. Also Super Record continued to be available, look for the non-fluted crank. The Shimano range was Dura-Ace, 600, 105 and ummm Exage? Altus? heck I never cared about the bottom of the range anyway.
Either the DA or the C-Record would be a top class build but be prepared for some sticker shock particularly wit the Campy. Recently sold a C-Record crank for $400 us. another option would be Suntour Superbe Pro, very nic group in my opinion.
Corsa Record came out very early 80's
I think not Mr Nob...you'll find C-Record first appeared in 1984 (and Campagnolo never
named this group C-Record), in a sense C-Record has become a nickname.
C-Record is therefore incorrectly in common usage, but the reason it came into usage (I believe) is because Campagnolo upon it's introduction began to refer to all road groups as Corsa
- prior to this all road groups were referred to as Strada
Being prone to pedantry...or rather having a desire for detail, the C-Record group should be referred to as the Record Corsa
group - Campagnolo named it thus.
For Lewisfoto's benefit 980 was not a group nor was it listed in 1987, Super Record was not listed either in 1987.
Like the vintage photos by the way - should show some of mine, they're nearly all from my TdF , Nissan Classic and the"disappeared*"road races of the 80s.
