I don't know anything about them, but it's a nice looking bike IMO. Would be nicer with lugs.

Campy FD and RD-I'm not up to speed on the specific variety, Ofmega crank, Universal Team brakes, Colnago stem and headset, Campy Victory tubular rims, Campy hubs



I picked it up in Raleigh from a guy who inherited it from his uncle. He did not know much about it.

Many thanks,

JW

but why do you call it a Junior? lookign at the freewheel I think it is aimed at younger racers who have gear (well atleast they used to) restrictions.

the RD looks like either and early Triomphe or more likely a 980 Gear, it should be a nice rider after a good tune up and cleaning. if it is too lowbrow for you ship it my way.

No worries about being too low brow.....

Always searching for info on my growing accumulation.

And you saw the reasoning behind the name. It seems to be a nice enough frame, shifts well in spite of the benign neglect. The good clean and polish is on the way no doubt.

Anyone want to through a guess at age?
