I found these on e-bay last night:http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&rd=1&item=7209890006&ssPag eName=STRK:MEWA:IT or item # 7209890006 I took a look in my top tube cable clip drawer (really) and came up with 6 sets loose, 2 sets undisturbed in the original Campagnolo envelopes and two more sets on bikes. Hummmmm... I might regret this, but any o youse guys interested in a set for $299.00? John T.Pergolizzi Brooklyn, New York<<<<

To which I add: I guess I am not asking enough for the NOS/MIP I have on auction right now: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=7209306071&rd=1&sspagename=STRK%3AMESE%3AIT&rd=1 currently sitting at a measly $15. But I really would like to share the info (I dunno, maybe this is common knowledge) that a correspondent shared with me, that is that Campy switched to Stainless Steel around 1974. The info can be read in the auction Q&A. Blue envelopes don't mean either is inside, the all knowing Magnet will tho.

I took a magnet to my stash and sho'nuff. I have a few rusty ones which held fast to the magnet, all else lay there immune to the forces. The ones I am selling are thus assumed to be Stainless. By the looks of the $300 ( and not gonna comment on the value there) ones, they look to be good old rusty type chrome plated steel.

Yours in Campy minutia
