Available again!  Proper heavy 1.8mm brake cables are very hard to find - they do work better!

 

Campy Nuovo / Super Record true 1.8mm inner brake cables are very hard to find with the <C> head.  Here you get the genuine rear with the <C>, and a front that we belive is likely to be Campy but which may be early enough that it was not marked!  But we are not sure. The front may be a tad shorter than some NR fronts - we get about 755mm.

 

Why we think the front is early Campy is that it has an "inner core" and outer wrap like typical Campy cables.   Campy cables were made by Casoraghi, so this front is looking to be just what we'd expect.  But we aren't sure, and it could be something else.  But whaterver that something else is, if not Campy, is super high quality and is very early looking. So for your early Campy restoration these cables while not truely "perfect" are mighty fine and appropriate for all but the most crazy fussy.  

 

The cables are new - never used.  But there is some discoloration as is typical of these cables after sitting for so many years.  But we wouldn't think tiwice about using these on an old Cinelli or Masi restoration (and we've used a few sets of these already on our in-house projects).
