Almost Joe. The best sources of old stuff were the shops that decided to be importers! My local shop was/is Montrose Bike Shop and they were one of the first to import Shimano and had been one of the biggest importers of Campagnolo early on (the import part of the shop was named Euro-Asia Imports).
