    part 1 - first picture looks like a link in a chain. Not sure about the other campy part. Bottom bracket perhaps.

    part 2 - looks like a campy drop out with adjusting screws

    part 3 - from the grit, some part of the drive train. I think its a chainwheel.

    Sohi, your pictures are beautiful! i love how the tight macro and short focal length render them almost abstract and give them a grand scale. I would love to see them as larger prints.

    I'll throw my guess in here, Totally off base, cause I don't know my parts, I'm getting there though, but my guess is these are parts off an old school italian ride. Or a bike that's been through a freakin' fire, thus the soot on everything.

    12. ?
    13. ?
    14. ?
    15. seat post

    thanks for the compliments guys! the pics where takes with a canon 300d and a 50mm f1.4 lens with
    extension tubes. the camera is not mine I just borrowed it. I love this look with just a tight
    focus plane.

    here is the solution:

    1: chain link
    2: brake quick release
    3: upper part of headset
    4: handlebar plug
    5: that one is a bit unfair I know. Its a spoke with a bit of reflective tape wraped around it
    6: part of chainring and bolt
    7: campy crank bolt (chorus I think)
    8: holes in the chainring
    9: rear cog with part of chain visible on the left and the lockring on the right
    10: limiter screw on rear dropout
    11: screw on 3T stem
    12: thats the lower lug on the headtube with the headset visible in the lower right corner
    13: inner side of the handlebar mount of a cyclocross lever with part of the spring visible
    14: rear brake hole
    15: seatpost / seatpost lug

    some got it pretty correct. Its tricky to make a riddle balanced...not too simple but also not
    ridiculously hard.

    vrrrooooooommmm TURBO!!!
