Campagnolo Gran Sport 1005/2 Front Derailleur: Push Rod - 1950's 1960's (EXC)
This was Campagnolo's top level front mech from 1954 (the first year the world logo appeared on this derailleur) to about 1963 when the Record model was released. This Gran Sport was chrome plated and had nicer castings and details compared to the similar but dull grey coated Valentine model. Often called the matchbox or pushrod derailleur.
Excellent used condition, with the exception of the missing chrome on the outer cage plate. The body, hardware, and clamp are exceptionally nice. If you switch in a cleaner cage, this will be a show bike appropriate derailleur.
- 28.6mm clamp
