Campagnolo Brakes Identification

I was told these are Super Record brake calipers and I just want to confirm. I've googled and went off info on Velobase. I'm about 80% sure these are SR brakes.

And also what price should I pay for these.

Thanks in advance.

Tell the owner to put the pad holders on the correct way.

I noticed that too.

I'm guessing the enclosed ends go towards the front

big "super" thing was the drillium brake levers, calipers same . regular record..

(holes punched in flat stock, before the aluminum was stamped into shape)



Look up them on ebay to see what others were willing to pay.

The brake pad holders are all 4 of the same. They only fit on the non drive side of the brake caliper drops so the enclosed ends are facing to the front.

@fietsbob I don't quite understand your post. I believe the SR had the spoon like cable release and the Record had the butterknife flat releases.

The dome shaped QR lever was one of the 1978 changes that Campagnolo introduced to conform to their interpretation of the CPSC requirements for the American market. As such, It was instituted across the board, on all Campagnolo brake calipers, even Gran Sport.

^^ likewise^^

No that part, was just changed over time , not both at same time for 2 different products..

If it matters, find people's sites , who put old catalogs up, online..


there were 2 brake reach calipers produced,,
bolt center, to midpoint of the pad adjustment range
# 2040 _ 52mm; # 2040 /1 _ 47mm

As I've been led to understand, and observed, the calipers are the same Record to Super Record. The Record used chromed steel pad holders, the he SR used aluminum pad holders. In the early/mid eighties (IIRC) the SR "script" calipers came out.

I'm content with RECORD brake calipers. I was able to get them for $50. Seller is dropping off the correct brake pad holders so they're correctly installed.

I'm happy overall to have been able to add them to my Tommasini

Thanks all for the input.

You did great if you got them for fitty bux. The pad holders look alloy, so these probably came with drilled levers, thus a Super Record set.

Your Tommasini will be happy to wear them; nice score

Thanks DD. A few months I was able to score the drilled levers from a forum member. The seller had a 50th anniversary set also for sale so I'm hoping he didnt mix up the brake pad holders. Those sold also the same day

Gotcha - it's easy to mix them up. I once rode around for a day with two switched out - lucky I didn't have to give my brakes a panic stop that day!

I even looked in my spares to see if I had any more left to help out, but nope. They went to @Andy_K about a month or so ago on a trade.

I've still got two of those brake pad holders from DD and I'd be happy to pass them along to someone in need, but the two I have are both NDS, steel and pre-CPSC. They are in excellent condition though.

The ones I need are drive side pad holders. Thanks for the gesture in offering to pass them.

As DD mentioned, with the aluminum holders, most likely from a Super Record brake set, a later set. This was an 80's change just prior to the "script" logo on the arms with the revised cross-section shape.
These are "short reach" the "normal" reach calipers have room for BREV. INTER., the short just BREV. INT.
There is a missing bump pad stop to insert into the back side of the front caliper arm adjacent to the cable adjuster. Do not feel bad- there were very easy to lose.
The revised short reach caliper when first introduced had a different cable adjuster, think the aluminum knurled nut with the conical top as seen on the later G.S. level calipers.
That changed fast, returning to the "O" ring style.
​​​​​​​And now you know too much.

I swapped the others with the seller for these so I have no odd spares.
