Buying Campagnolo Rims On Ebay: It Pays To Ask


Conserv

Recommended Posts

Thanks Steve, that is what I was looking for. The inner lip on mine is sloped with little rolled lip like yours has. I think someone said it was called brinneling? Not sure how a tire could wear that down on all four. Maybe it is okay. When I get back home next week, I will post a few pics to ask for opinions on whether they are safe to use. I hope so, I like them.

Thanks, Ray,

11 hours in a 40-year-old car is an especially long 11 hours! It sounds like Mid-Am was great!

Best,

Steve

 

11 hours in a noisy 40 year old car with a 4.10 and almost solid motor mounts.

 

And a loud stereo! :D

Ray

Stop reading this! Don't you have anything better to do?? :P

If Ray were to go out to the garage right now, he would find that the car is probably still vibrating...

Heck, after 11 hours at 4,500 rpm, Ray is probably still vibrating!

4000 rpm on the trip back ;-)

 

The only object which loosened (found so far) was the shift knob, which was unscrewing itself and noticed at Eureka Springs arrival. :D

 

Cheers,

Ray

Bill,

 

Since some Fiats and Ferraris also take the 56 mm center caps and circlips, there are always new ones around. Here are astonishingly expensive new ones:

 

http://www.fiatplus.com/campagnolo-wheel-center-cap-pr-277237.html

 

$32.50 each for repros? I think I paid more like $12 for my new example, with circlip. I just checked on eBay and German eBay and found nothing, but there are often new repros at better prices than $32.50 each!

 

I recently saw a listing for a new repro of the incised and in-painted style, in the 56 mm size. But I can't locate it now.

 

If you want old, it's a patience game. Any of the number 2 style, referring to my first photograph in post #11 above, is likely to be faded if it is authentic, or of suspect age if it looks fresh! If it's faded, you need to love patina, because repainting a slick domical cap that was probably silk-screened originally sounds like a challenge (at least to me). And incised versions, numbers 3 and 4 in post #11, are pretty darned rare, but they do pop up on the eBays. Perfectly restoring a number 4 would consist of re-chroming and re-doing the in-fill painting, both quite do-able. You will, however, lose some of the crispness of the incised designs. Expect to pay $40 or more for a good number 4 style. Bargains? Maybe, but I didn't see any in the couple years I've been conscientiously hunting for caps. Anyone who gets their hands on a cap prominently marked "Campagnolo" is more likely to over-price than under-price their find!

 

Good luck and best regards,

 

Steve

 

EDIT: OK, Italian eBay has a repro of the incised variety, but it doesn't seem to come with circlips. It measures 55 mm rather than 56 mm but I'm guessing it will work.

I love this thread as well as your steel wheel thread. Very interesting and incredibly informative. They should both be pinned as "FAQ's"

Nice! 6-inchers? Are you running 205/60's? Any rubbing? Is your car a '70-ish, but with long rear bumpers?

I'm on the east side of town, near Emory.

So, OK, we're forming the Atlanta Vintage Ragno Club!

Best regards,

Steve

That was my previous 2002, a '72 model. 6 inch wheels, the tires are 205/60 and required a fender roll in the rear and a bit more than that in the front. Still running non altered camber settings back then. I picked up my set of wheels in the early '90's and they have the heavy, die cast? chrome center caps.

 

The wheels are currently on my '68 1600 project, i am a little north of you in the Alpharetta area currently. Sent you a PM.

I don't see a lot of Campagnolo literature, but here's a quattro-lingual November 1979 folding brochure I recently purchased out of the U.K. Virtually all these models were available throughout the '70s.

 

It shows 9 different styles of Campagnolo alloy rims -- all cast in Elektron, a magnesium alloy -- and the available sizes by car make and model. No model names or numbers are mentioned but the Bertone (a.k.a., Ragno) is the first model shown.

 

Regards,

 

Steve
