This may be kind of obvious to some folks, but I have to ask the question for my own sake.

I'm sitting here with a Valentino front derailleur from the early 80's - and if I'm not mistaken it's not a million miles from the early 50's GS R/D ? - bar a marginally cheaper outer shift plate and a black steel operating arm - it looks almost identical to me ?

What is this ? Campag trickle down technology over 30 years ?

explanations Chuck ? - If this is true what other bit's got this kind of treatment.
