Ken, the seller says the box is original but the inlay probably is not. As far as the levers, I think they are correct. As the seller notes, the holes were drilled before the levers were form-pressed. Later levers had the holes punched rather than drilled. The bend was also a little more pronounced in the early levers, and as you can see in these levers, the tips are less bulbous.

And now, consistent with my bicycle preferences, I'm off to cheer for Italy over France in the FIFA World Cup final. Forza Italia! Andiamo azzuri!

As the seller mentioned in his description, the box is much newer /later one.

Is the brake lever set very early 68's? I thought those short reach perforated ones are from Super Rcord era production form mid to late 70's, isn't it right??

Also, isn't it possible to buff off letters on the caliper and re-anodize for 900.00 price tag?? See monting bolt "BREV" vs. "PATENT" CAMPAGNOLO, which one is older. I thoght the "PATENT" one is older??????

Regards to all.
