Details and value


About 15 years ago my dad pulled this bike out of a dumpster and gave it to me. Since then I have done some long rides and enjoyed it all while never actually knowing what kind of bike it is! I have found it is some type of champralago brand but other than that I donít know. It had Phil wood hubs and Shimano super mighty crank set, Shimano 600 derailer, mafac breaks, mon champione deMondo bars, and laprada seat post. Hoping for any information thanks!

See if you can find a serial number on it. Somebody here might be able to decode it for you. When you have ten posts you will be able to upload photos.

Hmm... That's a new one.
mafac breaks.
I've found them to be pretty reliable.

Maybe show some detailed pics of the frameset when you get your post count up a bit.

All the info you gave refers to components, not the frame. Usually when people refer to the brand of a bike, they mean the frame. Campagnolo is a component manufacturer. They donít make frames. Can you find a serial number or any stickers or decals on the frame? And yes, ultimately pics are necessary, including well focused details of where the frame tubes join each other.

Shimano Super Mighty crankset? Does not exist.


Bikes typically cannot be identified by. parts, as parts are easy to move bike to bike.

Hickory86, please reply to some posts and get your post count up to 10 so that you can post pictures of the bike. Interesting sounding bike. Looking forward to seeing it. Especially, since you seem to have gotten good use out of it.

I'm guessing a bit here -

champralago = Campagnolo
Phil wood = Phil Wood
Shimano super mighty = Sugino Mighty Comp
derailer = derailleur
mafac breaks = MAFAC brakes
mon champione deMondo = Champione del Mondo
laprada = Laprade

Sounds interesting, especially the wheels using Phil Wood hubs.

Campagnolo Nuovo Record gear is great but not all Campagnolo gear is top notch. Their Valentino rear derailleur should be good but actually does not work all that well.

I haven't been able to find anything stamped on the frame except Champralago on the right rear of the frame where the hub release hooks on.

I was thinking that there may be some type of model that champralago made that came with those parts. champralago is the only name stamped on the bike. I will get my post count to 10 to upload pictures today.

It says it right on the Crank so I was kinda assuming that was the brand.

Campagnolo was and is a component manufacturer; the dropouts stamped with their name have been used by many, many manufacturers throughout history.

I'm thinking of number between zero and twenty. Guess what it is.

Pics of stuff like the handlebars, seat post don't really help us figure out the brand of the bike but help to some extent indicate its quality level.


Phil Wood hubs are excellent quality and were a popular upgrade at one time. I don't think many bikes came with them stock.


MAFAC cantilever brakes. Nice quality European brakes, maybe this is a French touring or Randonneur bike


The front derailleur is made by Shimano and the model is 600, the crankset however is made by Sugino and a again a great part.


Nice looking bike. Sadly there isn't anything that jumps out to make identification easy.

My take so far.
to identify the clues are at the tube intersections, fork crown, bottom bracket shell and possibly the inside area at the drive side rear dropout.

the bike has been repainted- my view is it was modified at that time . The seat stay bridge is set up to take a brake but cantilever bosses, a cable stops for shift cables near the lugs and for the rear brake cable have all been added no doubt.

the threading specs for the bottom bracket that may be stamped on the outside surfaces will help a small amount.

a smart dumpster save.
a serial number- maybe on the off drive side rear dropout and or under the bottom bracket is worth a look.
