I recognize Phil's Cooper from Bike Forums... mine dates to the mid seventies and is fitted with a mix of Campagnolo, Zeus, and Sugino.

It had more Zeus parts when I acquired it but the lovely Zeus high flange hubs / Weinmann wheels were in bad shape and the rear hub was cracked, and the Zeus derailleurs were in horrid shape.

The day to day / training wheels are some Suzue hubs laced to Araya red labels, the high flange Campy / Mavic wheels and tubulars I have are race only. The pedals are Suntour Superbe... they don;t get any smoother than this.

It is the finest road bike I have ever owned.
