Thanks to all who replied. I tried everything suggested (yes, everything) and there was no way in ..... that the Campagnolo brake lever clamps would fit. So, after way to much time spent trying to make it work, off came the really nice Fiamme bar stem combo and on went a Cinelli bar stem combo - no problem getting the clamps on this bar. She's all taped up now and looking quite handsome.

I'll try Universal brake levers/clamps as one list member suggested they seem a tad larger. If that works, then they'll probably end up on the 1968 Geoffrey Butler.

Thanks list for your ideas; unbelievable to me that a bar would be made to a dimension that Campagnolo brake lever clamps won't fit on.
