Campagnolo rear derailleur

I believe this to be a C-Record derailleur, but why is there only one bolt to the left of Campagnolo when on other Campagnolo derailleurs there are bolts either side.

No idea what you mean. Would help if you explained more clearly or put a circle or arrow on the pic that shows what you are referring to.

Please respect others by taking the time to post clearly so we can answer quickly. All lowercase and multiple typos makes for a hard read. Thanks!

It's simply a different, later design, I presume for a cleaner look.

As said on the other duplicate post , lower ranking than C record, as the back pulley cage is stamped steel

no outside 2nd chomed bolt because the cage pivot is assembled from the back after you would remove the pulleys

then you access the bolt to remove the outer pulley cage piece ..

someone else, in the 41 did the work for you looks like its Athena..

Early Campagnolo derailleurs bolted the cage to the body with a long bolt passed through the lower body from the outside (like the upper pivot bolt).

At some point about 20 years ago (or so (big so) they went for a cleaner look, with a closed lower body, which was tapped, and took a bolt tightened from inside the cage. It's been that was ever since.

That's c-record era athena. You can tell by the limit screws above the parallelogram plate and the toothed b-bolt scheme.

FWIW:
