I was so excited to learn that FB stood for "Fratelli Brivio", I rushed out to Northern Lights and did a search. Lead me straight to the Fratelli Brivio website:

However, it wasn't quite what I expected! I tried another one:

That wasn't it too. I gave up after:

(vintage bike content) Anyway... who made the all steel Campagnolo hubs for sale on eBay?

and when were they made?
