    Just missed something Cuda2k would have loved

    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.

    Very nice. Pity about the Campy ones. But at least now I know what people mean when they talk about "pantographed": photoetched.

    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.
