I have a number of ebay auctions running for on-topic items right now. They all run out in the next 3 days. You can get an overview of them by going to this link:

There is a 60.5 cm C/C Rauler Special with full Galli gruppo. Rauler frames are true no-nonsense racing frames with great geometry. You effectively get yourself a Colnago design without the Colnago price and image (for good and for bad!). For those that have never seen the full Galli gruppo this is a very classy component set, as I am sure Wayne down in New Zealand can attest. The auction is here:
HYPERLINK "http://cgi.ebay.com/Rauler-Special-60-5-cm-C-C-full-Galli-gruppo-1980s_W 0QQ itemZ120276047133"http://cgi.ebay.com/Rauler-Special-60-5-cm-C-C-full-Gal li- gruppo-1980s_W0QQitemZ120276047133
I then have 6 Campagnolo chainrings for sale. All should have a certain degree of interest. Two of them are pantographed Super Record chainrings: one a lightly used De Rosa 53 tooth ring: HYPERLINK "http://cgi.ebay.com/De-Rosa-panto-Campagnolo-53-Tooth-Chainring-144-BCD_ W0Q QitemZ110264615941"http://cgi.ebay.com/De-Rosa-panto-Campagnolo-53-Tooth- Cha inring-144-BCD_W0QQitemZ110264615941 and another being a NOS Cinelli pantographed 53 tooth ring: HYPERLINK "http://cgi.ebay.com/NOS-Cinelli-panto-Campagnolo-53-Tooth-Chainring-144- BCD _W0QQitemZ110264525143"http://cgi.ebay.com/NOS-Cinelli-panto-Campagnolo-5 3-T ooth-Chainring-144-BCD_W0QQitemZ110264525143 The other rings are all NOS. One that might be interesting to those who want to \u201cpimp\u201d their rides is a 53 tooth Nuovo Record chainring that is ideal for those who want to personalize their bike by having some drillium or pantograph work dome on their bike. The Nuovo Record chainrings are the ideal starting point to do such work. If you go to the auction text ( HYPERLINK "http://cgi.ebay.com/NOS-Campagnolo-53-Tooth-Nuovo-Record-Chainring-144-B CD_ W0QQitemZ110264620131"http://cgi.ebay.com/NOS-Campagnolo-53-Tooth-Nuovo-R eco rd-Chainring-144-BCD_W0QQitemZ110264620131 ), you can see a link to photos of some \u201cpersonalization\u201d work that I had done on just such a chainring (I can also help in getting the work done by a friend of mine in Italy).
For those with a bit more refined palate, I have a Campagnolo Super Record \u201cMexico\u2019ed\u201d crankset. When I say Mexico\u2019ed, this is meant to indicate that the 5 arms of the spider have all been milled to leave a hole in the middle and the outside profile of the cranks have been rounded off. The whole crank has then had the anodizing removed and been polished. This was commonly found on Colnago Mexico bikes, hence the term Mexico\u2019ed. In this case the spider milling holes and the crank milling have all been in-filled with red paint. For good measure, I have fitted NOS chainrings, with 53 and 43 teeth respectively: HYPERLINK "http://cgi.ebay.com/Milled-profiled-Campagnolo-Super-Record-chainset-43- 53T _W0QQitemZ110264639472"http://cgi.ebay.com/Milled-profiled-Campagnolo-Sup er- Record-chainset-43-53T_W0QQitemZ110264639472
Keeping on the theme of red paint infilling, I have a very first variant Campagnolo Super Record 2-bolt seatpost from the early mid-70\u2019s. Greg Parker has kindly identified this as being the very first long variant with long flutes. It is in good shape in a desirable 27.2 mm diameter.
HYPERLINK "http://cgi.ebay.com/1st-generation-Campagnolo-Super-Record-27-2-seatpost _W0 QQitemZ110265146185"http://cgi.ebay.com/1st-generation-Campagnolo-Super-R eco rd-27-2-seatpost_W0QQitemZ110265146185 great for your circa 1974 Italian bike. For those with a slightly newer bike, I then have a later single bolt Super Record seatpost in the same diameter but with yellow paint infilling:
HYPERLINK "http://cgi.ebay.com/Campagnolo-one-bolt-Super-Record-27-2-mm-seatpost_W0 QQi temZ110265147192"http://cgi.ebay.com/Campagnolo-one-bolt-Super-Record-27- 2-m m-seatpost_W0QQitemZ110265147192 and a 30 cm long Campagnolo seatpost in 27.0 mm diameter:

Then a NOS Dura-Ace AX rear derailleur: HYPERLINK "http://cgi.ebay.com/NOS-Dura-Ace-AX-rear-derailleur-early-80s-Shimano_W0 QQi temZ120276699056"http://cgi.ebay.com/NOS-Dura-Ace-AX-rear-derailleur-earl y-8 0s-Shimano_W0QQitemZ120276699056 and NOS headset for your Italian race bike from the 40\u2019s-60\u2019s period: HYPERLINK "http://cgi.ebay.com/Way-Assauto-vintage-headset-from-40s-50s-and-60s_W0Q Qit emZ110264524599"http://cgi.ebay.com/Way-Assauto-vintage-headset-from-40s- 50s -and-60s_W0QQitemZ110264524599
