1945 Italian built restoration.

I just picked up a Italian built bike from 1945 with Campagnola Cambio Corsa. Can anyone steer me to some sites or clubs where I might find parts for the Cambio?

Try Classic Rendezvous forum, I believe someone there has a Cambio Corsa set up for sale, or at least did have during the past week. It's not as easy to use as this forum and they are really finicky about rules but may be able to help. The postings come as a series of daily e-mails and there aren't many pictures, but it's interesting and detailed.

What parts do you need? What makes you think that your bike is from 19445. How have you determined that? I have a few bikes with cambio corsa and have most spare parts.

My wife's uncle built the bike and that is the year he recalls building it. I need the little screws that thread into the skewer cone for the front and rear hub. Also the rear skewer arm.

I don't quite understand what you are looking for. I take that you mean the dog bones when you are speaking of the little screws. You should be aware that there are actually screws as well as brass/bronze disks that the screws apply pressure onto block the cone piece. Scott Davis has these screws (at least he used to have them). I have no idea what you mean by rear skewer arm. Is this the unlocking arm that goes along the seatstay or is this the actual skewer axle rod that fits inside the hollow axle? If you are looking for the arm, you should be aware that there are two different diameters cam bits that fit into the skewer axle rod and must then also determine which one you need. The same holds true for the skewer axle rod.

And then you have to be limber enough to shift it, I could when I was young but I doubt I could do it today. And with that, I will admit I was on level ground, shifting one of those on a grade... brings a whole new meaning to thinking ahead. I admire them, but I will not be spending any money to own one.

I've developed a fascination with these things, now I want to build a frame for one.

He is from the future, so of course he knows his bike is from the year 19445.

Please take and post some detailed photos. That's a very cool bike... even cooler considering it was made by a family member!

Did you add the internal cables or did it come that way?

Surprisingly the internal routing was original. I hadn't realized the concept went back that far.

Pretty much as long as there has been cables, there has been savy builders to run them through the frame tubes.
