    Yep, like that^ works, too, as long as the liner is thick enough to stay 'trapped' in the cable guide then the cable moves inside it.

    some kind of Helicoil or similar but solid insert?
    Strange, if so, cause you then have to screw the brake bolt into it from the front, same thing in reverse to remove.

    more and more innerestin'...and confusing!
    IF it has BSC BB threading then it looks more like a Brit or possibly something from Netherlands. I'd say the DOs are stamped and the extra thick bits...

    ARE the dropouts really forged, or do they just have that extra thick raised segment that gives that impression? Something like that can be brazed-on...need to check the DOs for actual forging marks....

    only used it once, and found it tends to stay in place...and the place you want is to stay on the cable and move with it rather than as "part of the shell" for the cable to move through. So if you're...

    "extra metal" on this "spoiler" Cinelli shell is there to make it *****en! It may also serve to give a tiny bit of protection to the vents that are partially under/behind the spoiler, maybe keeps...

    TA cups may not have numbers stamped in them, but they DO have a "code"

    no idea either, but VERY stylish details...can't wait to find out...
    is the 70mm BB shell also Italian threading? (I'd be surprised, this seems like something French, Belgian or even Japanese!)

    if it's the threading in the boss that's allowing loosening, clean EVERYthing but especially clean those threads and the screws. LocTite isn't all that 'recoverable' to allow continual adjustment,...

    ^what did that decal look like in '53?
    Same as the "'72" gold foil that Mr. Broderick has published?

    BTW, that crank is an early Ofmega, back when they used an eagle (or some bird) instead of the later simple "tilde" loop logo.
    Love to see all these Grandees, they are truly grand!

    and THAT's a big clue, pointing away from Japan and toward a 27.2 seatpost. Might be UK, but doesn't rule out some other locations including No. America.

    I definitely had some Campy covers on barcons that were green, but those were the ONLY color besides blue that I have seen firsthand on genuine Campy covers. And the blue are far more common in my...

    So maybe we can deduce that by '72 Columbo was labeling the tubesets (that is, including the foil stickers with the package) and so probably using the SL designation.

    Panto can be scarce and expensive, but one thing you might use to your advantage: many of the small-sized early Scapin pieces just had the 3-open-circle "logo" and that would be a lot easier to fake...
