From Brooks B17 article http://www.cyclingnews.com/tech.php?id=tech/2004/reviews/brooks_b17

"Can you name another bike part or cycling-related accessory that has been in continuous production using the same methods and materials for over 80 years?"

No, but maybe close would be: Velox bar plugs, Velox cloth bar tape and rim tape, Christophe toeclips and straps, TA Cyclotouriste cranks, Carradice bags, Silca frame fit pumps, many VAR tools...

What else?
