When you say gold hubs or gold cranks nowadays, you’re usually greeted with rolling eyes, or maybe a facepalm. This wasn’t always the case. Back in the 80’s some Campy enthusiasts went through the trouble of gold-plating some Campagnolo components; like this pump head. Don’t be mistaken, this isn’t anodizing. This is real gold.

Velo Cult just so happens to have some beautiful photographs of these parts. Check the rest out on the Velo Cult blog!
