The NR bbs that came with 50th gruppos did not receive a better finish simply because it was in a 50th gruppo. You are correct in your observation of NR spindles receiving a better finish in later years. Better finishing was just another one of those manufacturing changes, but not associated with the 50th gruppo. I have some of those high luster spindles as well. They were common in the last years of production. Some even received the same finish as the C-Rec.

Any chance that those 50th BBs received a higher standard of finish, but were otherwise identical? I've noticed a lot of variation in NR BB finish and I know the latest ones were much shinier than the typical 70's and early 80's units. However, I have one spindle that is just ridiculously well finished, almost like the chrome on a Harley. While I know there was variation, this one is a real anomaly and I wonder if it isn't a special 50th anniversary finish. Tom Dalton Marc Boral &lt;> wrote: Scott,

50th gruppos only came with a NR bb (steel everything).

Did the 50th Anniversary Groups use a Ti BB spindle and alloy cups or the conventional steel spindle and cups. Thanks Scott still in St. Paul, MN
