where can I find a replacement for this broken spring of rear derailer

this spring in my rear derailer (campagnolo) is broken. it's the spring that generates the tension of the pulley-case. I have been looking for a replacement on the internet but with no luck. Is this spring acturally available as a single replacement part? what does it call exactly? or do I have to replace the whol rear derailer?

my bike is a more than 10 years old dancelli racing bike (2x7 speed), if I have to buy a new rear derailer, what model shall I buy than?

You are hardcore, man. Usually when the spring is shot, I go for a new derailure.

I suppose a Campy derailure might be a different story, though.

You don't say which model Campag rear mech this came from. Nigel Scott at stocks most parts even for really old models, have a look at his stock list to see if he has one. The prices are in Sterling (UK Pounds) but he will ship all over the world. Good luck!

Lickton's ( sells small parts for Campy. I found a replacement barrel adjuster for my Veloce RD listed on their site but decided to use a spare downtube barrel when I saw that it was priced at $18!
