it is doubtful, but you might go to the Campyonly site and ask Tim Otherwise you will have to try it. I have a 93-94 record that works with ergo.

If I'm not mistaken, 1992 was the year Campy came out with Ergopower - the integrated brake/shifter mechanism. All Ergopower systems are indexed. Campy systems were already indexed before they came out with the ergos, although the pre-ergo indexing certainly had its detractors. The pre-ergo system used downtube shifters, and was originally a 7-speed system. I had a Medici that I bought in 1992, that had a brand-new Chorus system on it, including the ergo shifters. Yes, it is indexed. In 1992, and for the next several years, the system was 8 speed. I'm not sure of the year, but it was later in the '90's when they went to the 9 speed system, followed a couple of years later by the now-current 10 speed system.

Hope that helps.
