Campagnolo coaster brake?

Found this hub on the interwebs:








The rear hub is described as a "Campagnolo pista". So anyway, did Campagnolo make coaster brake hubs???

Oh, and where can I get 'em..... Anyone got one lying around they don't want???

By the way, if anyone does a search for this they may see campyonly's rumor about a Campagnolo "Pesante" gruppo (based around a coaster brake) from 2006. Note the date of the rumour (April 1st). Don't get sucked in like I did.

Too fricking cool!!!

Looks like an F&S torpedo coaster brake with some sort of abused peanut butter wrench torque arm, but still cool nonetheless.

"The page author got his 'anteriore' and 'posteriore' mixed-up in his
translation. "mozzo posteriore Campagnolo a contropedale, rarissimo
forse solo prototipo" should be read as "Campagnolo coaster brake rear
hub, very rare perhaps only a prototype". Very very cool. I'd like
to see if the hub shell itself has a Campagnolo logo, that torque arm
looks authentic to me.

Just when I thought I'd seen everything vintage Campagnolo....

Oh wait a second, I did my own translation from the page. By the way, THIS is the page.

So yeah, from that page:

"mozzo posteriore Campagnolo a contropedale, rarissimo forse solo prototipo" which I guess translates as: "Rear hub is a Campagnolo back-pedal brake, rarest perhaps only prototype."

Guess I can all but give up my search, huh?


[EDIT] Beat me to it. And thanks for the CR link.

Might be worth contacting Campy, see if it ever went into production.

The torque arm looks authentic enough. But yea, wish we had better photos of the actual hub. Haven't seen anything like it in the catalogs.

Must be a fairly recent prototype, as it is only 24 hole! Perhaps if enough of you lobby Camapgnolo, they will put it into production.

Low spoke count coaster brake hubs were not unheard of in the 70's. Yesterday I came across the catalog listing for the Shimano CB-100 coaster brake hub which had avaliable drillings ranging from 20! to 36. However it does seem odd that Campagnolo would produce such a prototype with a very low spoke count during that time.

The low spoke counts on the Shimano hub would have been for small diameter wheels on children's bicycles. I find it hard to believe that Campagnolo would have been trying to crack the children's market.

What the heck is the piece going from the nose of the saddle to the top tube? and did anyone else notice the brake arm clamp! SWEET!

The piece going from the saddle to the top tube was a stabilizer for the saddle,
it was pretty common on older track bikes. It kept the saddle at a constant height.
pretty spiffy looking item atmo.
