Campagnolo Holy Grail? or just another craigslist farce.

Ok. you have to check out craigslist Chico Ca. ad. The guy has some "super rare" track parts that he says is "Campagnolo gold". 500.00 for some track parts seems crazy to me but if anyone out there wants em. im pretty close so i could possibly pick em up. Im just curious if this is the real deal or not.

So that's how you started the hipster craze.

Hoity toity Iconic old Campagnolo did BMX?? Surprised they made a foray into the "discipline". but I guess they did......Maybe it's like when Porsche came up with their Cayenne SUV. Just most never expected from the manufacturer.

No, they're not the Campagnolo holy grail. They may be rare and worth a bunch of money, but they're not the Campagnolo holy grail.

Yes, they did....and Columbus made BMX tubing, and Cinelli made bars, stems, seats, and complete bikes, and Clement made 20" sewups, and Ambrosio made rims for those sewups.

For the record, my Campy holy grail would be a pre-script logo Super Record RD.

I've got to get a '70s road bike back together so I can put mine on a bike. Sitting in a box just doesn't do it justice.

Inch pitch Campagnolo track rings and cogs are the Holy Grail? Has someone lost their ambition?

Campy holy grail? Can only be one thing, first gen Gran Sport. One up right now, I say the price will be close to 4 figures (in pounds),

Wasn't there a second-gen. version that was less common than the 1st gen. and therefore potentially more valuable to collectors? Also, I'd rank the first iteration of Cambio Corsa up there.

First gen quick releases and chrome-plated brass shift levers bring in silly money too. HiCampy's site is most drool-worthy of all.
