Stevan:

Yes, the cheaper rods which are completely round at the lever end are a perfect drop in. I think I used a 2000-ish Veloce 130 rear skewer rod to convert a NR front curved lever QR to fit a 130 mm rear NR hub. I did this conversion twice in 2001.

The later/higher model (Record) QR rods I think will also work, but they are not completely cylindrical on the cam end. I vaguely recall testing them and they do fit, but they not identical to the older style, since I think they use an additional tubular metal sleeve (I forget).

I don't know about the rear axle thread interchangibility, but I'd bet on a 99.9% yes.

You can check the official Campy website and look at the spare parts catalogs for the skewers.
