Picked this up yesterday.

Picked this up yesterday from a guy in Houston. Appears to be an '85 model. It has a Campy headset, crank, bottom bracket, seatpost, shifters and very early Campy deraileur (pat. 64). The rest consists of Sekai bar, don't know what stem, Nissin Hubs with matrix rims, Modolo brakes and levers, some awful bright yellow bar tape, weird looking Schwinn light and a decent old Concour seat. The picts pretty much tell the rest of the story.

In the deal I also picked up a really nice set of early Dura Ace brakes with only one drilled Dura Ace lever. He'd used the other one for something else. So if anyone has a lonely drilled early Dura Ace lever I have a home for it.

that is a patent '84. Nuovo record wasn't around then and prior to 68 it would have sat "Patent". 84 is consistent with the other record parts on the bike. Nice score.

Yes, plus lack of pivot bolt hex head at top pivot and the plastic "horns" on the adjusting screws mean that it's definitely a CPSC era NR RD. which started sometime in the mid/late 70's.
Here's a pic of my older Pre-CPSC era, 1st gen Nuovo Record Patent 72 RD for reference:


And here's a pic of my Pat. 83 which is very similar or identical to what is on your bike:

Thanks for straightening me out on that, I'm just learning the details on this stuff so all info is appreciated. The thing feels good on the road and actually shifts better than my Mondia that also has an NR on it. After riding the Raleigh I'm thinking my Mondia needs some adjustment.

Chombi: That is a gorgeous derailleur. I'm certaily envious of you guys knowledge but I'm getting there (slowly). I've got to ask, what is CPSC and acronym for.

Consumer Product Safety Council they mandated some very silly changes around 1978 which means Campagnolo components changed a little following that.

Theory is, those black plastic horns were supposed to keep those "dangerous" adjusting screws from hooking and tearing your nuts off if you crash your bike........Seriously!!
Same with the "coke spoon" shaped QR levers on their brake calipers....

I've ridden this equipment since then and confirm that this design change works well. No hooking or tearing for me.

Well, if you've gotten your nuts down there you might have two or three other things to worry about.
