Mystery Campagnolo parts- tire pump?

A nice little box of spare Campagnolo parts came with my 1974 Raleigh Professional. Some of the parts are tire pump related, and I'd like to track down a pump like the original. Could you take a look and let me know what type of tire pump the pump related pieces will accomodate? (Please overlook the brake bolt and the cable bracket on the left side).

Thanks very much, Jeff

you have a couple hub dustcaps there as well. The pump head will fit on a vintage silca frame pump.

Like John said, an aftermarket head+mounting gear for a Silca pump. Got any pics of the project bike?

That is the plastic pump head. Much more useful is the metal pump head, also by Campagnolo.

It isn't exactly a project, other than some miscellaneous details.

Here's some photos via link to my webshots file. This is the bike I posted about a week or so ago. Bought it on ebay recently. Thanks very much for the pump parts advice, too.:

Looks like you might have a part of the metal Campy pump head. The front part.

Or, you can get one that fits like this. That way you don't have to use the Umbrella clamp.

kiss your paint goodbye if you mount it like that.. the pump will rub and mar the paint.

^ And using an Umbrella Clamp is so much better? I protect the paint on all my builds with special clear tape, we use it at work when we install toppers and bed liners. Works great for bikes, want some? I have a few rolls.

The one pump head is in fact plastic, as you all have noted. And yes, that smaller piece (ring) is metal.

If you don't mind, if I find what I think is the right pump, I'll run it by you first.

What an excellent bike, incredible condition, and I like the way the bar end shifters were done.

Those are parts for extremely rare and valuable Campagnolo stem shifters. If you want to build a pump with them, well go ahead but it's your loss...

I've never seen one of those - I was wondering what happened to the little legs... like in Skoda2's photo.

Back in the day... choosing the color of your Silca Impero pump was an important part of the buying process - I liked 'em to match the bar tape and cables, others liked 'em to match the frame color. But if you didn't upgrade to the Campy metal head ... well... <skoff skoff>.

I still have my old one that I use when I patch tubes in the garage.

Actually, those plastic Campy heads aren't too bad, but the metal ones are so much better.

All come one, don't make fun of my "Skyway 707" (name faintly visible on the downtube)... I'm giving it away (on another thread). Out of curiosity, wonder if it was sold with that name to tie into the Boeing 707? And there is an inexplicable "B" in another photo, here you go. Per Wikipedia, the Boeing 707 was first produced in 1958, might be same vintage as this bike?
