Brake lever ID help.

Hi,

so i presume those are Campagnolo Brake levers since the whole bike is specced out with Campag galore (including pantos on most everything)?


right lever

left lever

side angle, left lever

hoods

That might be some generic panto someone is putting on everything many things. The real Battaglin logo has curved back and goes always right to left. I wonder if the P the legs form mean something or you know they are legs....
There is a really similar on appearing on a pair of deltas marked SOMEC but not identical (and I dont think they were made by SOMEC unless specially to order).

The one you showed often claimed as Battaglin but one fool can make a hundred others... (although could be right as well)

Welcome.. my bro has a Battaglin so wile it is similar I knew their logo is different.
BUT
Also Cyclomondo sells (makes?) a set of the shifters as Battaglin. As well respected decal makers I would be surprised if they would mistake that, whether they started the false info or being mislead by others.

it's a version of the Olympic (not sure which year but perhaps 1970s) pictograms for "Cycling Events". I recall we had a thread for this years ago and back then I looked them up.

Cool - thanks for doing all the digging. Does this help with identifying the model/type of these brake levers?

Hard to say based on those photos. possibly Super Record with some tweak on the puller.

Edit: reading back the original question, yes, they are definitely Campagnolo, that was no question from the beginning, thats why the thread went toward the panto matter

Forgot that Super Record has factory drillium and the pattern doesn't match.

Just because I studied Graphic Design, so this stuff interests me, here's a brief survey of the Olympic pictograms since Tokyo 1964, when that Olympic Committee made the first (and highly influential) series of pictograms,
focusing on the designs for "cycling" and cropping out many of the rest:

striking stuff for 1964!

Mexico had bright colors and a fantastic logo but as pictograms go...meh.

I think Munich really nailed the pictogram brief in '72!

So did Montreal because all they did was flop most (but not all) to mirror images and change black to red!

The rest (Moscow, Los Angeles and so on) were exercises in just trying to make something different from the last Olympics, but IMO none are any better, most aren't nearly as good as Munich '72.

Here's a website to see more if anybody is interested:

The Munich ones are proper pictographs indeed. Strange the Montreal took them over, and even stranger, that they flipped some but not all of them. So if we look at a pair of brake levers, th right one should be from '72 but the left is from '76 (depending on the panto operator, some made it consistent, either left or right, but not both)
On the "Forbidden R" page from where I got the pics, there are 2 really fitting comments:
