Campagnolo Gran Sport front derailleur, 28.6 (1 1/8") clamp-on. $150.00

This is difficult to date, but we're guessing late 1950s. It should be noted that this is NOT a less expensive Valentino front changer, which was produced in the 1960s and early '70s. This is a vintage Gran Sport. There are design clues in this derailleur that allow us to write this with certainty. The bolt fixing the cage to the pushrod is on top, not facing forward. And the hole where the pushrod leaves the derailleur body is plain, not with a reinforcement.

Campagnolo Nuovo Record front 28.6 (1 1/8") clamp-on, no circlip on top pivot. $40.00

Probably made late 1960s. We'll call it 1967, but that's a guess.

Nuovo redord front derailleur

Later front changers (posted below) had a circlip at the top pivot. But this design never caused any trouble and worked perfectly.

This is an updated version of the original Nuovo Record Front derailleur. It's a bit slimmer and has been lightened. Note the holes in the cage. In fact, this version is referred to as a "Three Holer" by some vintage component afficianados. Official weight is 95 grams. This version was produced 1979? - 1985

1986 (approx) Campagnolo Victory braze-on front derailleur $50.00

Campagnolo redesigned its components in the mid-1980s. The new groups were Triomphe, Victory and C-Record, C-Record being the top, professional group. Victory offered nearly the same performance as C-Record, still with superb finish but reasonably priced.

Our Victory front derailleur has had very little use. It's perfect for the 1980s steel bike restoration project.

The chrome and polished aluminum are both in great shape.

1986 (approx) Campagnolo C-Record clamp-on front derailleur, 28.6 $75.00

This is a first generation C-Record front derailleur, then Campagnolo's newest top of the line group. As you can see from the photos, this example shows little wear.

Campagnolo put its design engineers to work to come out with a beautiful, modern, racing group worthy of the Campagnolo name. They succeeded admirably.
