Rob, That bike shop would have been "The Clean Machine" where I went to oogle the full campy Cinelli's, Legnano's, etc. Also the shop where McLean Fonvielle worked as a mechanic. The whole showroom was only about 300 sf but there were always some top of the line bikes on display (and sold)- Chapel Hill being an affluent university town. Gitanes were the volume sellers at the shop. I certainly saw many campy brake equipped bikes there in '72.
