The COOL COMPONENTS pic thread

Thought I'd start a thread where we can post pics of cool and beautiful components. I have a few pics, but thought I'd start with these, which inspired me to start this thread. After making the Record stop pin, the fellow in England who supplied NOS pins to those who needed them, exchanged a few emails with me. Nice guy. And, it seems Campagnolo Gran Sport derailleurs are one of his restoration passions. His name is Peter Brown. And I love his pictures. Posted here with his permission.

Anyway, please post portraits of some nice components you like.

This is the coolest, most over-the-top thing in my parts box right now:



Maybe someday I'll get the frame touched up, apply the decals, clearcoat and she'll be ready for the road.

Ah. Just the kind of beauty I had in mind. Whenever I see something like those interesting cranks, D. Dude, I try to envision just how they did that milling. Over my head. Here's a couple more from Peter. Check out these pedals. Top set are Torrington, I think.

These are not found too often, Tipo HF built specifically for Motobecane (1972), IIANM (If I Am Not Mistaken). They really clean up nice.[IMG][/IMG]

As much as I like the Cinelli 1A, the 333 ttt record is elegant:

WOW. Some pretty jewelry here. That Cambio setup is amazing, MA. As it that Jubilee. Always looking for an affordable one of those,
just because I think they're so beautiful.

But we can't spell voyeurism without the French, so here's some brass from the Hexagon.

Are they brass?...or copper, Ital? I've always loved the embossed rivets on the Ideales that had them.

Okay. So dribble 'em in, or go for overkill? I vote overkill!
