CR members group might enjoy looking at this ebay auction for a NOS ICS campagnolo grouppo.


For a short time in the mid 80's, ICS took an already expensive super-record grouppo, and polished and drilled it out, relabeling it an "ICS Grouppo".

I just noticed that these grouppos is that they have both inner and outer chainguards for the crankset. This is not exactly what most list members want to have on their racing bicycles ! ! !

This is the first time I've seen a clean set of closeups photos of all the ICS parts, it might be a good thing to capture for the CR website.
