Campagnolo dating codes

Ben writes: "Brakes and brake levers often have date codes on them.Weinmann and Dia-Compe calipers usually have codes on the back of a caliper arm.I have a set of Dia-Compe mountain levers where if you pull the lever all the way, a piece of the lever is exposed, which has a clock-type date code.Dia-Compe cantilever brakes don't appear to have a date code, but supposedly the 981, 983, 986 brakes were first introduced in 1981, 1983, 1986, etc." Following Ben's lead - I checked three sets of Dia-Compe G calipers and all have the four-digit date code on the back of one of the arms.

In the example, the "F" indicates the sixth month, or June.Especially useful, and challenging to sort out and verify, was the Shimano code.Also gathered on this page are date codes provided by others.If you know of other components that are marked or coded that can be added to this list, please let me know.SR (Sakae) Below the insertion mark on SR seatposts (and Sakae posts) is a stamped mark, such as F-84.
