Strange Campagnolo Derailleur ??

Got this the other day, I didn't notice it at first cause it was all full of crud. Once I cleaned it and compared it to the other ones I have, I starting to think it's a fake. Look at
some of the alloy pieces, they look like stamped sheel metal, oh and the cage is cad plated not chrome.

Looks real enough to me. BTW, soak that thing over night in plain white vinigar then give it a scrub with an old toothbrush, it'll be rust free, that easy.

Maybe I should take a picture side by side to another one I have. It will make you think twice.

Pretty interesting. Never seen one like it. I don't think it's a "fake", more likely just intendend for something specific. Maybe for an OEM, building city bikes or? I can't imagine they would save any money replacing the alloy pivot arms, but maybe they neede something stronger?

If it bothers you that much you should send it to me. Really, you'll be much better off without it.

That is very intriguing! I can imagine someone with an old broken derailleur and some pretty good metal working skills deciding to make their own parts for it. Can't explain the plating though.

Cherish it if it works well. The True Believers will see it as some sort of bastardization but to me that's worth more than the original. I love hand-made stuff.

I was looking... I new it from the late 1970s/early 1980s. Polish up the clamp and you have a nice record mounting piece for swapping a cage from a braze-on if you need it.

I'm digging the simplistic look of it.

Thanks guys, Never have seen one. The Cad plated cage looks terrible, I can't imagine Campagnolo not Chroming the Cage, oh well.
