Is it possible to convert a "99 Record fr. der from "clamp on" type to fit a braze on?
TIA

In theory yes, in practice no.Kerry

If you look at the derailleur, you can see that you would need to replace the "inside" of the unit - not the moving arms, spring, or cage. While this is possible if you could get the parts, in practice no one is going to sell these parts and the price, if they did, would be close to the price of a new derailleur.

You are absolutely right. I actually tried to do that for a friend, but the main part that is required is not imported by any of the major Campy guys. The price was available and it would be cheaper to buy the whole thing.
i used one with a shimano band clamp - no probs NmSpirito
