In all honesty, what Italian classic wouldn't look a peach adorned with these £200 beauties?

19 bids, reserve not met - they can afford to be on the sauce - profitable living being made....

Out of interest, are these available as 'real' items?

Really, as has been mentioned in the previous thread, he is getting better but these are a bit too much - i think sometimes, less is more, and this is one of those instances.

He spelt Campagnolo wrong on the right lever (as we look at it), at least it looks that way!

Do you reckon its all freehand?

In regard to originality, afaik all pantographing is aftermarket so there is no such thing as original.

I know, I know. I've got the Campagnolo logo's (which I'm goin to do a batch of soon) but in honesty set up and machining fees are massive, to do it properly ain't cheap....

Those look pretty awful to be honest & poor machining skills when looking at the drilled holes & supposedly milled grooves - certainly embarrasses us machinists
