Campagnolo Cottered Bottom Bracket

Always a surprise to those new to collecting vintage bikes and parts, Campagnolo DID produce a cottered bottom bracket set. I rarely see these in used condition - perhaps they are still spinning along in high-end bikes. When NOS units show up, you can expect to pay $250 to $300. I'd love to have one in my '53 Learco Guerra, but not until I can find a good used example.

Dear Aldo,
I'm an oldie. Tried to post a comment yesterday to the effect that I have a fine example of this cottered Campag b/b set - bearing surfaces perfect.
Will sell.

Dear Aldo,

As I said, I'm an oldie and don't really know how to make a posting, but I have a perfect Campag cottered b/b set - bearing surfaces perfect. I found these surfaces to be more resilient than the later cotterless ones,
Cheers, Ross.
