That is a tool for an anti theft QR set. Install the tool in the end of the skewer to tighten or loosen it.

I do not know, but it is purple, anodized and I want one !

looks like a can-opener form campy…

Gonzo Mudslingers ratchet. Probably the only 3DV bike part our shop couldn’t move in ’92.

Yup, uglyyeti is correct

A rachet arm for changeable tools attached to the pivot

I have a set of those Mudslingers in red.

Charlie Best - 05/27/13 - 1:21pm

I had one of those.

It wasn’t great.

wrench for campy adjustable height seat post.

It looks like a tool to adjust the proprietary seat collar compatible with a Campy Seat Post.

Thanks for the link Speedy. the picture at the top of the page just brings back memories of all the cool stuff we all had to have back then. Too funny!

Oops! Late giving the answer, but here it is from Wes at First Flight Bicycles:
“It’s the ratchet wrench for a Gonzo quick release set.”
