Yes, John, C-Record was introduced after 1983 so is definitely Off Topic. Not sure who the elitists are as C-Record was (and still is) very expensive....

Good day, I am wondering how you can tell a C- Record

From a Record, there must be certain markings,

Hope you all are enjoying the nicer weather...

Thank you

Deborah, I'm hardly an expert, but I took a quick look on velobase.com and apparently C-Record means Corsa Record. Velobase has some 18 components listed from this group, with photos, and of course they also list examples of Nuovo Record and Super Record. I believe several of the photos on the velobase home page are C-Record, probably chosen because they are such beautiful components and such good photos. I seem to remember detecting a trace of elitist disdain on the CR List for these components, possibly because they are too modern to be on topic.
