NOS Campagnolo #145 <C> BAR END Rear Shift/Derailleur Cable: 199cm - Nuovo Record / Gran Sport - Vintage 1950's 1960's
Vintage bar end cables are braided instead of wound, to provide a much more flexible inner wire that lessens friction the extra bends around the handlebar produce. The cables stay in coils, and don't return to a straight position once released like DT shift cables do. They are designed to pair to the #625 stainless steel coil housing.
The #145 inner cable is for the rear derailleur to handlebar controls (Bar End / Barcon). It's 1970mm length works for rear or front DT shifters. If you need one for the front, just cut it to length! *or buy a front 153cm cable here!
New old stock, uncut and never installed. Naturally darkened with age. Their heads are roughly filed from their molds, leading me to believe these are an early model from the 50's or early 60's (This is speculation, there is no established timeline based on cable characteristics)
