    Looks like a beat up C-Record to me.

    Thanks, any idea why there is only one bolt to the left of Campagnolo, every other c-record I see that looks like this has one of either side.

    Mechanics forum would probably give you more info than you could ever imagine in about a half second.

    Not trying to be snarky, just think you'll get best info there.

    C-Record, 2nd generation - I think.

    visually missing the bolt? .. it all comes apart from the back ,


    steel inner cage piece , places it down the ranks a lot further than C record .. or chorus.

    at those levels the inner pieces are forged aluminum.

    Ah yes, Athena! Very C-Record looking, to my old eyes anyway!

    The original Athena shifted like dog crap. It's the reason I started using Shimano. That was a dark period for Campy.

    I have one on a classic and in friction mode it works excellently. Apparently Campy fell down the stairs with their early index systems.

    I built up a Paramount OS with Athena when it first came out. It was supposed to be the first Campy group to get indexing right. I couldn't get it to index shift with any consistency, none of the Schwinn dealer mechanics could, and neither could the Campy rep.

    Dealer took it back, and put Dura Ace on the bike. It took a couple more years for Campy's index shifting to catchup.

    That said, the Campy parts of the time are considered by C&Vers to be among the prettiest and most collectible ever, and apart from the indexing, they perform very well.

    fyi all the initial 8 speed derailleurs got retrofitted with a steel inner cage. The aluminum ones that came on C-Record, Croce D'Aune, Chorus, they were too thick and caught on the spokes, breaking all sorts of stuff. Campy sent out the stamped steel inner cages to replace the original aluminum cage.

    Also check the pivot areas for cracks. Those things, and the 9s ones, cracked due to less than optimal pivot angles.
