Hello every body! :?: :( :roll:
I have a question: I have a Nice olmo bike from 1995 equiped with véloce 8 speed.. I Broke my 8 speed speed shifters in an accident and need to change them.. But the problem is that old and vintage 8 speed speed shifters NOS or in good condition are rare and VERY expensive. Hopfully, I found a lot of campagnolo 9 speed speed shifters, vintage too, from years 1999 to 2003, that are great.. So my question is : would those speed shifters work on a 8 speed bike, cassette... ( from ~1995 )
Thank you for your Help, and excuse me for my english; l'm from switzerland !

    Campagnolo changed both the freehub spline pattern on the rear cassette and cassette sprocket spacing when they went from 8 to 9 speed. Best solution would be see if you can find some narrower 9 speed spacers and respace your 8 speed cassette and simply have 1 spare 'click' on your shifter.
    Make mine an Italian, with Campagnolo on the side..
