Ok, Campagnolo is well known for passing down parts from one group to another, but it sure seems like Zeus takes this process to a whole new level. And to make it more difficult there is all but nothing as far as catalogs out there. velo-pages.com has a 1982 catalog, a member of VeloBase was recently sent what he believes is a 1980 catalog, and between the two it seems like Zeus played musical chairs with the component groups and their parts.

So, once again I'm turning to the collective brain power and memory of the C&V crew to help me make heads and tails of the component groups and what parts went with what.

To kick off the fun, here's a link to the https://velobase.com/ListComponentGal...f-25d825b08365.

I'm sure there are some flaws in the current identification. And I'm also sure that there are some people out there that know the answers.

For what its worth, here's the Zeus Gran Sport derailler set. I think they were obsolete by the late 60s. Velo-retro has repro Zeus catalogs from the early 70s through the late 80s:
