I would appreciate if you can post me the photos. Though I am running after Chorus monoplaner sets nowadays, who knows if I will fell in love with Deltas someday or not!

The kit consisted of the four caliper arm bolts and special flat/round nuts, the fixing bolts to the frame and their barrel bolts, the spacers for between the caliper and frame and the four barrel bolts for the brake holders/blocks.
The price back in 1990 for the SRP kit was around 150.00 US dollars and it was expensive, but if you already had the calipers, around 150.00 to 200.00 US dollars for the pair, most persons bought them to significantly lighten the calipers.
The titanium parts conversion brought the overall weight down to about half of what it was with all the steel pieces fitted.

As for the logo thats now missing you can also have one made at most signage shops. They can scan the shield logo, scale it to size and print it black, or another colour of your choice onto clear adhesive vinyl.
Yes you can get Ti nuts and bolts fairly cheap nowadays but back in the late eighties to early nineties they were almost impossible to buy from general sources, and as such i ended up with the SRP kits purely out of 'no other choice'
You will know you have the last version Deltas when the bolt holding the caliper to the frame fits into the calipers arm pivot hole with room to spare, if it fits in perfectly, the version you have is the earlier version Delta.
You can also use the present Campy Record holders and pads which are very close in looks to the ShimaNO ones you mentioned, but with any of these you choose you will need some wider spacers to get proper leverage ratios.
So what types of motorcycles are you into tuning,,,,,,,
