    Attn: Campy heads!!! Which Deltas are these?

    Greetings! I am about to list my Deltas and levers on eBay and I was wondering if I could pick the brains of all the Campagnolo aficionados out there...

    I am wondering exactly what year, gruppo this particular model are from? The levers have the white brake hoods, the shield logo with diagonal marks, the quick release mechanism and can be run aero-style. the calipers also have the white rubber covers around the barrel adjuster and the printed (?) shield logo on the covers.

    Also, what would be a reasonable starting bid? In USD... They are in excellent working condition and very clean internals. I will be including the original hoods, original white cable housing, a box of Campy replacement pads, and the 3.5mm allen key for adjustment.

    Your wisdom and insight is very much appreciated.

    I think your delta brakes are Campy. Croce d'Aune 1st generation. Croce d'Aune was the second in the Campy lineup just behind C-Record. I would guess at 1986/7 as the year of manufacture.

    I have a Basso Lotto from 1991 with delta's. Your's look a bit different than mine. Mine are record.
    I agree with the guy who said they are Croce d'une. They look like them.

    Buy the way, you could get about $300 or more for them.

    99 cents. You'll pay less in fees at that price, and don't worry they'll sell for much more.

    Definitely Croce d'Aune. Croce was first intro'd in '87, and the linkage was upgraded to the criss-cross one in either 1990 or '91. So yours would be 87-89.

    Delta prices are all over the map these days, and I'm loath to speculate. I'd start them low, and see where they go. I'd guess that $300 would be the upper limit for a Croce d'Aune set, but who knows -- a decent looking set of calipers just sold for over $200, albeit with the newer linkage.
