As many of you no doubt noted a Campagnolo Gran Sport cottered bottom bracket just sold on Ebay (item # 290045366509). I have not been able to find a reference to this item in the Campagnolo time line and was hoping someone on the list would know when, and for how long, this item was made by Campagnolo. Many thanks!
