All the talk about SR rear derailleurs got me to check my own collection. I have a Pat.81 with "Super Record" engraved on the back parallelogram plate, solid aluminum pins, titanium pivot bolts, and a more satiny-looking black anodizing on the upper and lower housings. Also, the front plate has a raised section which is more of a parallelogram shape, mimicking the shape of the silkscreened logo.

The anodizing on my Pat.83 is much glossier, the pins are steel with have hollow ends, and the front paralleogram plate is a different casting, with a rectangular raised section (for the silkscreened logo) replacing the previous parallelogram-shaped area.

<< Hi Robert,

Good questions. I have seen SR w/alum. hanger & pivot bolts in r. der. with PAT. years 77,78,79. I wouldn't have included '79 a month ago. But saw my first '79 w/alum. just that recently. 1978 seemed to be the year that all SR r. der. came with alum. I have also seen examples of '77 & '79 w/Ti. 1981 was the first year of the new steel spindles (pins). Yes, brass ferrules were still used, even though that catalog #18 does not show the ferrule. Actually, in cat. #18, you can see the ferrule still in the front arm. They forgot to pull it out and assign it part # 82/A, as done in all the previous catalogs. Another oversight amongst many, in the scrutiny of Campy catalogs.
