Campagnolo produced this model, part Campagnolo Number 1044, from 1969 into sometime in the 1980s. Campagnolo had been making a two-bolt post much like the Nuovo Record model pictured below since 1957. But this is the famous one.

This post has a minimum insertion mark, which was introduced in 1973. Ours in in excellent condition and will complement any serious bike restoration project. And if you are fussy about your seat angle, this is the only post to use.
