Help ID this vintage steel. Poss campy components

Hi,

I'm interested in a bike, but the seller isn't too knowledgable. I know the pic's aren't the best, but can anyone at least help me ID the brakes and brake levers on this bike? I'm assuming the frame is a re-paint. It looks like the chain-ring has a guard, so I'm assuming it's lower end and not campy.

I asked what components it has, and this is the response I got:
"The bike is a pretty standard ten speed. The shifters are worth mentioning though. They are located on the diagonal part of the frame below the straight bar. The hardware on the bike is from Campagnolo, a nice brand (so I've heard)."

Looks like large stamped drops, and weinmann brakes, which translates to a "pretty standard ten speed". If the shifters and derailleurs are Campy they were most likely added later. Ask for a better driveside pic?,,,,BD

Depends on the price, if it is low enough, just go look at it. Buyers that ask a lot of questions get put on the bottom of the list.

Thanks for the help ID'ing the brakes, I know the pic isn't good enough to do much more.
I agree, it would be best to go check it out in person... but it's quite a drive(almost 2 hrs) and the frame isn't my size. Price is under a hundred, so I'm considering it as a donor bike for my build.

4 hours of gas vs campy components, it's a tough choice, and probably not worth it. If it close by, I'd be there in a heartbeat.,,,,BD

The bike isn't high end or Italian so looks to be late 70's Japanese my guess would be Nishiki, I really doubt there are any Campy components on there of value. The bike is worth around $80 as is a couple of possible Campy components to really add much to value. Would be worth a look if it was local but I couldn't see driving 4hrs for it.

Without better pics from the seller I would never drive 2 hours to look at that. If it is Campi odds are good it is Valention and you can get a set of derailleurs for like $20 off ebay.
