Sometimes considered the last
(and best) year of the "C-Record" era. This is
the last year Components did not have the group name printed on them. It
is also the last year some components are still the original C Record design
including the crankset, front derailleur, front hub and seat post. It is
also the FIRST year of Exa-Drive, with new chainrings, cassettes, Sachs chains,
guided upper pulley and a ramp on the inner cage of the front derailleur.
Two different covers were made for the product catalog (shown). They were

1992 Regina Extra - Click Picture to download Sample
What's this Regina Catalog doing here? A few reasons:
First and foremost, Throughout the early "C-Record" Era, Campagnolo
was not offering a chain or an updated freewheel. Regina's offerings
were usually the item of choice. Campagnolo's early index shifting systems
are reputed to work best with Regina Syncro freewheels and asymmetrical chains.
Secondly, Regina's failed attempt at a road component group shown in this
catalog is representative of the final split between Campagnolo and
Regina. In this same time period, Campagnolo has begun stamping-out it's
own Cassettes, and re-boxing chains made in Germany (Rohloff) as their own.

Catalog! Catalog contains exploded assembly views of all components
and detailed parts break-down and assembly. The only known parts information available for late 1980's equipment, these catalogs were individually
serial numbered and distributed only to authorized dealers in a hardcover
binder. No further Parts Catalogs exist for years after due to
a largely un-followed plan for Dealers to request updated pages as needed.

Record is dated February 1987, and is otherwise IDENTICAL to the 1987 Catalog
below. Might just be a second printing, but I have not seen anything else
specific to 1988 for Record. Introduction of Croce D'Aune dated November 1987.
Introduction of Chorus dated July 1987.

Record & Nuovo Groups dated November 1986. Record Delta Brakes are
back. Logos are now printed on the crank arms and Delta
caliper covers instead of being engraved. Upgrades in both Nuovo groups from 1986 consist
only of leather
toe straps, black brake pads & a polished BB axle.

Un-dated Brochures. Delta Brakes are temporarily replaced with "dressed-up"
50th Anniversary Super Record Brake calipers with a Cobalt-colored
("Cobalto" in Italian) gem instead of the gold badge on the center bolt.
Also, the Campagnolo name on the arm is filled with blue. Only the Cobalto
Calipers are offered at this time and are pictured in the Record flyer.
The next two catalogs both show Cobalto calipers and as such are probably both
catalogs from 1986. Rims catalog also seems to be from this period.

Undated Brochures. Content of the white catalogs compared
to 1986 catalogs seems to indicate these simply may not have been final
revisions. First use of the Campagnolo Alphabet, and the only year the
alphabet character was placed above the Campagnolo Logo.

Addendum to Catalog 18 for the introduction of the new component groups.
This catalog dated December 1986. I have an identical catalog dated
April 1985. This catalog identified the Record road components as the "Record
group", and the Track Components as
"Record Track group". While the Italian word "Pista"
was correctly translated to "Track", the word "Corsa" was not
translated to "Road". This possible "Typo" may be the basis for the nickname
"C-Record", which never actually appears in product catalogs by Campagnolo.

The Introduction of "C" Record, Victory & Triomphe equipment. The
Cerchio (rims) catalog is undated but has one page identical to a rims page in the
main catalog, so these other catalogs are assumed to be 1984 despite
the use of the older world logo on the cover.
