Yes.. Nice to see a Nuovo Record equipped bike with no Super-ness about it, not so much as a chainring... just for a change!
I like your bike, but 100 people are too polite to mention that your headset is not Nuovo Record, and your front derailleur may be a Nuovo Gransport... I don't think that takes anything away from your bike, just saying... because you listed them as Nuovo Record.
Regarding your rims... they have no labels, but they may still bear the ghostly outline of the label(s), which could help to identify them. I think I can see this outline in the rear derailleur photo (twelfth pic.)... over to the rim expert.. (which ain't me!)
Didn't knew that about the front derailleur! Looked up some info and it looks like a campag FD without holes, the lip that was introduced in 1978 and the 'sun' logo is indeed a Gran sport! Although their would be no performance difference?
For the rims: thanks for the tip, I'll take a closer look when I'm back home and keep you updated!
£530 that is a fine investment, its worth probably double that! Make sure you ride it...only on nice sunny days mind you. You will get lots of admiring looks enjoy!
Seriously? I knew it was a good price, but is it realy worth double that? Anyone else an idea? Not that i'm even thinking about selling it, but seems like a good return on investment
Wow, thats a fine bike. Looks to be in great condition? What work will you be doing to it? Doesn't look like it needs much.
It's in very good condition indeed, things that I might do are polishing some parts a bit more and installing toeclips and red straps. Thinking of letting a friend make me some custom flandria straps, he's a leatherworker and did a great job with putting new leather on an old Rolls sadle...
Blimey that takes me back to my youth................it has lasted the years in much better nick than I have
I wonder when campag introduced the non-stabby curved skewers, coated brake guides and domed brake QR?
Well, those three things are mentioned in the link that's posted, 1978
I've also uploaded a non-resized picture so you guys can see what I mean with the 'burnt' red:
