That rear derailleur looks like one I owned in the early to mid-90s. It's a Record if I'm not mistaken and be extremely careful tightening the cable pinch bolt. It's threaded into the aluminum.

thanks, and good tip on the pinch bolt. mentioning that makes me eager to go home and inspect the threads condition, as i obviously bought this used.

The earliest Campagnolo slant parallelogram derailleurs didn't have the Ti hardware for weight savings. The Record ones were pretty heavy and due to the short nature of the derailleur, probably had a maximum cog size of 25 or so. This looks like the first generation 8-speed derailleur.

The pulleys have tiny, little loose ball bearings in them. Be careful not to lose them if you pull this apart.

The RD is 1992-1994 Chorus / Record. Any earlier and it would have a flat front face where "Campagnolo" is printed. Any later and it would have a model name printed on it.

The FD is C-record era. The "split" design seen near the top of the frame-attachment section was used on only Record-level FDs in the C-record era. By 1995 Campy had changed to a different design and was, again, printing model names on its parts.

If I'm not mistaken, It would be a second-generation 8V RD. The first was the 1991 RD with a flat front face, their move to slant-parallelogram.

Eight speed Record, 1992-1993-ish....

I'm sure you're correct. I'm no expert on the genealogy but I was a huge fan of Campagnolo back then. It was pretty much all I wanted and pretty much all I used. I've since changed that up a bit but this era from the mid-1980s to the beginning of the carbon era was a high point for aesthetics with Campagnolo.

I had a Serotta with this stuff for a number of years and it was always fun to ride.

1992-1994 Record.

1992-4 Record pulleys were the same as all other ders thru 9s era. Wee ball bearing pulleys for CRecord and CDA...first gen Record flat front plate and 2exposed bolts one frame attach, the other for cage. Chorus of this era had flat front body and front der didn't have the 'hinged' pivot of Record. That front der the same from CRecord(mid 80s) until 1995.

Small barrel RH shifter, it may be aall the way aft to get to lowest gear. Campagnolo made(and I have) big barrel RH retrofriction shifters to alleviate this issue. PM if you would like them, $75.

....keep an eye on the rear der main pivot knuckle. Over the years I owned several of these exact early Record rear mechs and two developed a crack on upper/top-side edge of pivot. They never failed or developed more play, but I always made sure to keep an eye on them.

If you can, try to get set of 8 speed Ergo shifters or index downtube shifters. The 8 speed Campy Record/Chorus groups are mighty fine.

I have a pair of 8-speed index downtube shifters, takeoffs from a build I never completed. PM me if interested.

Those look really nice. You can tell Record RDs of this era from Chorus by the internal/external hex on the cable clamp bolt. Chorus used the same tapered internal hex only bolt as Athena. The Record FD is easy to spot as it is the only one with a double shear "hinge" at the top of the outer link.
