Cyclo Campione

By the 1970s Cyclo of France had given up all pretentions of being a player in the derailleur market. Instead it looked around for an existing manufacturer to supply it with a desultory range of vaguely competitive components - and lighted upon Gian Robert of Italy.

This Cyclo Campione (possibly dating from 1974) was a Gian Robert Campione with the word Cyclo stamped into the pulley cage.

It's not a particularly fine ending for such a proud brand, but I have seen worse.
