Got outbid at the last second for these:
Gazelle Pantographed Campag downtube levers. Really fancied them for my Trim Trophy, and can't imagine I'll ever see another pair. Oh well.

On the plus side, I did manage to snag these:
A pair of Retrofrictions as a Christmas present to my Raleigh Gran Sport

Very nice. Pity about the Campy ones. But at least now I know what people mean when they talk about "pantographed": photoetched. :D
I've bid on the Gazelle downtubes a few times, but they always go beyond my max bid.

Well, it depends on the Vintage. Real pantographing is an engraving technique using a wire parrellelogram. It was used on Colnagos in the 60's, and the term caught on and is now used to describe lots of different types of engraving and etching.
