You date campag by era, not by year! It's quality art not disposable junk like some manufacturers.. ;)

Vintage era 1950-1984
Classic era 1985 - 1994
Modern era 1995 -today

In the "classic" period, Campag mechs often had a date stamp on the upper knuckle, and hubs usually had the year of manufacture stamped on the inner face of the cone locknut. But for quite a while in the late eighties and early nineties there was usually no identifying mark at all, and several of the groups were very similar in appearance. Even when parts had a date code, it's not always clear how to interpret it - C-Record cranks being an example.

Haha, I suppose it depends on how old you are, but it's:

Vintage era 1950-1967
Classic era 1967 - 1985
Modern era 1986 - pre-Ergo
Current era: the ergo stuff

80's Super Record says it on the hubs, and the chainset, at least my stuff does.

In fact all my rear mechs say what model thery are too - but none of the Campag fronts do.

As far as I know, Super/Nuovo Record hubs were only marked as "Record" (the ones with the black oil hole cover clip). And Super/Nuovo Record cranks were only ever marked as "Strada" or "Pista".

If it's late 80s, it would not be Super Record as 1985 was the lsat year for Super/Nuovo Record, although the stuff was still available for a few years after that.
