|did I miss something or when were Campy parts "made in France"? Seller is describing the parts as Nuovo, yet all they say is "patent".
I will admit total ignorance on the history of Campy parts, but are my questions valid?

|I am not an expert either; but, Campy opened it's first plant in France (for assembly and finishing) as early as 1948. I believe parts were made there later (marked France). See www.velo-retro.com/tline.html for a Campy timeline. It's interesting.|

|Supersize the pics, the derailleurs say Nuovo Record. I don't think the NR was made in Francais though. Either way, pretty bike.|

|I didn't bid on it because I've just been looking for a frame and the reserve was more than what I wanted to pay. It looks like a nice bike for collectors, but you can buy a brand new Corsa 0.1 special order with the same paint job for $1,100 -- and it would probably weigh at least 1/2 pound less.|| |
