Campagnolo Cobalto brakes - time frame?

Campagnolo Cobalto brakes were offered as a replacement while the problems with Delta brakeset was solved. But during what time? 1987 is a very rough indication. Do the gurus here remember more exact?

Could you still buy Cobalto brakes later when the Delta brakes later were reintroduced?

I can't really contribute much to the conversation other than to say that my ca. 1989 Freschi came to me with Cobalto brakes. I'm presuming that they are original and intended to contribute to the bling factor of the fully chromed bike frame. The gruppo is otherwise full C-Record, first generation ('84 - '85) RD and second generation ('87 - '94) crank. I guess all this does is help to confirm what you already know: that your date is in the ballpark.

Thanks! But Freschi might be tricky. He had great attention to detail and could have saved a pair of Cobaltos just becasue he thought it would work better with that bike as a whole. That said, if Freschi fitted the bike himself.

I just updated my response because the original was incomplete.
