hi all,

i gotta hunch that the vendor has a set of Campagnolo Xenon brake levers (lower spec late 80's to early 90's) as they have greenish/black plastic levers or maybe an early version of the Campagnolo Mirage brake levers (also plastic). the white hoods offered with the items in question i figure are probably replacement hoods common from the mid 80's and on.

i had seen a pair listed on ebay some time ago and quite rightly they went for very small coin. they had neither the charm of a set of plastic mafac guidonnet's, the mojo of the 1st gen carbon sugino 75's or the purity of any pre '85 campag record levers.

i will bet my 2-tone blue suede detto pietro's that the mystery levers aren't some super rare Super Record brake lever or within the CR list cut off period.

ciao
