Excellent work...that has helped me a lot.

Can someone explain where these brakes fit in....I assumed they are centaur ?

Not Olympus (they're plastic) or Record OR, so Centaur or Euclid? All the Euclid levers I've seem have been grey rather than black?

I think I found the right place here...can anyone confirm whether these are genuine Campagnolo brakes or fake/repros?

Nice and interesting job Adri !
Just some pictures of my full campy 1MB Cannondale. Originaly equipped with a mix of several campy element, I swaped the Olympus parts for upgrading. Olympus parts are plastic and steel made and didn't give quality feeling. But Euclid en Centaur are very amazing. Perhaps everybody doesn't like those big and Star Trek spirit design of the brake levers but they are very iconic for me.
It would be interesting to study difference between Centaur and Euclid…

The steel cage on the derailleur above illustrates the point I made earlier in this thread.
It also lacks the cage-tension adjustment featured on most examples and seen in the catalogue photo's.

Its very useful having Catalogue info to refer to but with Campag there are sometimes variations. I've even seen earlier Centaur mechs supplied with steel cages for instance.
The catalogue spec's are handy but not always the full story. :

Another anomaly sometimes found on Centaur mech's is an aluminium parallelogram back plate instead of steel. The graphite finish/version could vary a lot in colour too; sometimes it's nearly black, occasionally a much lighter grey..

I recently bought this on ebay (for a £60 offer, not £75 as listed!)
It's hard to see in the pic's, but the cage has a strange raised shape around the pivot point which I've never seen before.
