Gary; Just a quick note. I noticed on your post that you mentioned that Teledynes came with Dura-Ace. When you say late model, what year are you referring. About ten years ago, I purchased four Teledynes from the Southwest just for resale, as the price was too low to believe. These were all from 1978, as indicated on the Campag rear derailleurs. Just wondering if the earlier Teledynes came with Campag and later changed to Dura Ace. Also wondering what the years of Teledyne production were.

On another note, the Campag first generation rear derailleurs, used, are now worth more than what I paid for the Teledynes.
