Hi -

I bought a pair of SR levers on Fleabay and the inside is aero...I can't find pictures in the campag catalogues were these converted by any chance?

Or did Campagnolo issue some of these later on?

Ironically I need non-aero ones... ;)

Right before the switch over to C-record a few of the Super Record levers were retrofitted to aero routing. You can see examples on pro rider's bikes from 1985.

Thank you :)

Need to get new levers then... Did Campagnolo modify these for the teams? As it looks quite well done.

Could well have been done by Campagnolo but I would ask some of the more technical guys on here. You could always list them on Ebay with some ridiculously high BIN and see what happens.

Campagnolo did NOT officially make any of these. There were however quite a few sources back in the day for them. Most of them did not work all that well as they had an incredible amount of friction and required the bars to be drilled.
