Campagno0lo SR did not hit the Pro Peloton as preliminary sample test parts until 1977...so fluted seat posts themselves were simply machined versions of regular seat posts until then...and they were done many different ways by many differnet prople...a lot of Campy NR posts were fluted and/or drilled in the late 60's and 70's.

Well, that's news to me and probably to much of the rest of the list. So all those 2-bolt SR fluted posts that came in the blue boxes and were listed in the catalogs from around 1974 on were just a figment of our imagination?

Check the archives, old Campgnolo catalogs, etc. You're off by about 5 years.

You are correct that there were a lot of non-factory fluted Campy posts. That continued to be the case even after the original SR post went out of production c 1978. Most of those posts could not be mistaken for the factory 2-bolt fluted post.
