Campagnolo Nuovo/Super Record #753/1 Cyclocross Chainring Guard For 1048/4 Crank: 144mm BCD x 46T (Near Mint)
Ultra rare Campy chainring bash guard for 144mm cranks! These were spec'd with cyclocross 1048/4 CX crankset, and were originally intended for 1 by setups with a guard on each side to prevent chain drop. This one was intended for the outside, evidenced by the crank arm indention and logo on the same side while beveled chain guard side is on the inside. This was the days long before derailleur clutches, and cx'ing a Nuovo Record RD often wound up with dropped chains. They also work just fine with this ring on the outside position and a max 46 tooth chainring on the inside position.
This one appears to be a later version, with Patent Campagnolo inscription and indention for crank arm. It also appears to be the Super Record version, as the Nuovo Record version had a less satiny finish.
Near mint lightly used shape. The front and rear faces are mint and free of marks/wear, while the inside of the beveled edge has marks from the chain rubbing on it. No top edge damage from rocks/bashing. Show bike worthy.
