Identify Campy Monoplanar Brakes

I'm hoping someone can help me identify these Campagnolo monoplanar brakes, and suggest new pads for them:

Front:




Rear:


From what I've read, I can use Koolstop pads, but I'm not sure which ones. I also get the impression that the Campy pads currently on the bike are not correct for the brakes, and I should instead have a brake shoe similar to what's shown here:


Any suggestions on what I can use as replacement pads? And, should I start looking for brake shoes on eBay?

Thanks!

The first three appear to be Athena and the forth are Chorus. You can tell by the thickness of the brake caliper holder for the brakes shoes, Athena are larger and the Chorus are narrower (the Mirage took the look of the Chorus with the model name on the calipers arm). The only way to distinguish between the Chorus and lower entry level is the finish and the attached parts. Hope this helps and you can go to www.http://velobase.com/ for comparisons. Mike

They seem like second generation Chorus to me. Athenas have a simpler design, here are the athenas:



The ones you have did move to the Athena group but that was later and the Athena name was laser into them.

I am pretty sure the OPs brakes are not Chorus Monoplanors (atleast the ones in the first 3 pics) since they lack the thin nut behind the cone shaped capnut. I think they are either late Athena, after Athena got the brakes from Chorus, or early Veloce.



I have some pads like this on a set of Veloce I picked up a few years ago. when it comes time to replace them I am going to use these KoolStops.



These Avids may work too. I like these two options since you can use the thick washers to mimic the thickness of the old Record style pads.

Veloce would make sense, as (most) of the rest of the component are Veloce. I was thrown off by the lack of a group name being screened/lasered onto the brake arm, as that would be practical.

I'll try the Kool Stop pads. There are about eight bike shops on, or near, my commute, so one of them should have them.

Thanks all.

A simpler design that is non-monoplaner, of course. Worth pointing out for the folks who dn't know the difference.

I stand corrected. This is from the 1994 catalog, I would say it is a pretty close match,

Two thumbs up for campagnolo and making everybody's life a real PITA trying to identify stuff from that era. They never put a single serial number or part number in the parts, plus, all the groups almost look almost the same all the way down from chorus... darn!!!! Im sure than if somebody shows up in campagnolo's office with of these calipers asking which is which he wont know
