Modern Campy style holders work fine....I use them on all my Deltas. You can use the original Delta bolt as well. You may have to add an extra thin washer to get the holders to tighten down - I've had to do that on some but not every set.

Bingo.

I’ve got modern record pad holders on mine. I used the original delta bolt and used an extra washer (like the one seen here) between the arm and orbital adjuster. Works perfect.

+1 here, currently a set of Croces running old C89 Kool Stop pads and holders, although it doesn't appear they are available any more.

Wonderful brakes as configured.

@choke - very pretty!

Did you do any special tweaks for bigger tire clearance? 25’s are the biggest that will fit under my 5 pivot set.

Thanks.

Spag, those are Croce d'Aune Deltas. They adjust like 'regular' brakes rather than the way Record Deltas adjust so the slots are longer than on the Record version...which is why I prefer them over the Records. Fortunately the fork was made so that the pads are in the bottom of the slot and they have max clearance.

To give you another idea of how much more clearance CdAs have, on this bike the pads are not close to being all the way down in the slots and while this tire is obviously too tight to ride it does spin without touching.

Hmm... gonna have to move some calipers around to be able to get the whole hardware out then.

Saw the pads with the holders for sale but not the camber/caster mechanism thingys... probably I can take that from another brand but what sucks the most is that we had like zillions of those for sale at the swap meet and now we have none

The other thing that sucks is that a kid in the swap meet had like 5 tons of little bike thingys in his table to the point of hurting the eyes, sure he had all I needed, dumb I did not ask :/

I have used Yokozuna holders/pads, but I see that KoolStop now has pads that fit Delta holders. I'd go that way

Or search for campagnolo brake pad holder to find other options
