I guess some answers were as close as my garage. The approx 75 Peugeot had Normandy sport hubs and Simplex Q/R's. My 77 Raleigh came with Atom hubs with Q/R's that do indeed have Maillard on the outside of handle and Atom on the inner side. Q. Does a Maillard 700 hub say that on it? My Maillard hub just says Maillard on it.
