Record / Super Record and Gran Sport will all use the same bolts.
>From the sound of it you'll only need the long front bolt. Your curent front recessed bolt will become the rear nutted bolt..........The only other thing you'll need is the mounting nuts, an easy item to find.

Imagine that! No brake calipers! I have been building up my son´s (9) first decent racing cycle for some time, only finding out now that the 48 cm Alan frame doesn´t take recessed brake bolts. So now I need used, not nice but servicable Campag short reach calipers of whatever description with long bolts. As it is, the bike has NGS, Record, SR, 980 and Athena bits on. My son´s orders are for Campag he will be able to take to school. See what I mean? Thanks.

Ok then, I´ll enter the competition for the smallest bit a cycle has been taken home for. A fortnight ago I saw this big sixty-ish 15 kg Rixe 3sp. "light" roadster knocking about our LBS´s yard, and on the brake cables there was this tiny, very nice brake cable clip holding the cables together where they cross just in front of the handlebar. Got the bike for 8 Euros because of it, and if it weighs more than 10 grams I´ll be darned myself. Beat that!

The clip now adorns my 1949 Claud A/C, and I even managed to sell on the Rixe.
