Donald, do you know of a link to someone who is selling first generation Campagnolo FD pivot arm screws? These are the slotted head screws that hold the pivot arms to the body. They are NOT the screws/pressed-in pins that hold the pivot arms to the cage.
If you or anyone else on the list has these screws I will pay $25.00 PER screw. But they have to be the real deal; not crap from Lowe's. I will pay an additional $25.00 for the lower pivot arm; this arm is different from all other Campagnolo lower arms in that the lower female section of said arm spans the entire length of the body's lower protruding shaft.
So if anyone has an old first generation Campagnolo FD that has seen better days or has a cracked body, etc, please contact me off-list with photos so as I can promptly send you cash with PayPal.
