Campy Parts ID?

I've had this Campy RD and mismatched brakes for about a decade now, but I don't know much about them. I believe the derailleur is 8-speed, but beyond that I have no idea. Does anyone have more info on these?

I've used the derailleur with friction shifters on past builds, but I'm also curious to know if it is compatible with 9-speed Campy shifters...

Can't be of much help, but I do know the first brake pictured is a monoplanar. You might find this sight interesting, VeloBase.com

1989-1990 Chorus. 7 speed Syncro which won't work with later Campy shifters.

Thank you. Good to know. Too bad it won't work with the shifters, though it will match well with my 80s Marinoni.

Derailleur is a first generation Chorus, not compatible with 9 speed index.
Front brake is also 1st generation Chorus.
Rear brake is a later (cheaper) one, probably Mirage.

If I remember correctly, that particular Chorus RD is a unique design, with an A/B adjustment for different sized freewheels. One of the settings makes it more of a slant parallelogram design, and is supposed to be a nice shifting unit if you need lower gears.
