Got this...

...with this...

...and this

Given some decent weather and some luck in finding a matching chainset, I should have this on the road for late spring :D

I'm given to understand it's early 80s but the gruppo (which is all brand new BTW) is 8spd Ergo with single pivot brakes (Early to mid 90s?)

All input welcome. C'mon! Waddya fink?

luv'n'stuff

The wheels are Open Pro on 8spd Veloce hubs.
Brand new but a dozen years old or so.
This gear has been in my mate's loft for yonks.
Not sure who built the wheels but it could have been Woodrup in Leeds.

I can remember buying an 8-speed Campa gruppo with single pivot brakes in the mid 90-ies. The cheapo Avanti version. I used parts of it during Bordeaux-Paris '96 and LEL '97, when the ergopower lever gave in.

Sorry, Guys.

I know pretty much all I need to about the group.
It's the frame that I don't know anything about.

It's lug brazed so it's pre 90s, Columbus tubing with Stronglight headset and Cinelli stem (XA?).
What can you tell me?

The Stronglight headset looks quite the same as the Stronglight headsets I bought in either '94 or '95 (in black) and in '97 (in silver). AFAIK colombus frames brazed in lugs were produced at least untill the end of the 90-ies.

Thay are actually branded 'Mavic' if that helps.
I'm going to change them, may not be fitting the Veloce brakes pictured
but going for some dual pivots which might have a chance of actually stopping the bike.
