Brian, I can tell you a little but don't know if you'll find this info useful. WAS made somewhere near the Switzerland border. The only place you'll find an Italian word with a "W" in it. Italians are loathed to put a "w" in any of their words for that matter. The pedals in your JPEG are a standard Italian 60's pedals usually found on Frejus, Atalas, Legnanos. WAS had some sort of relationship with Campy, specifically I have seen ads and photos of them with Campy spindles,......and get this: they also came with Campy dust caps. Remember the Campy Gran Tourismo derailluer with that funky red "C"? thats the kind of dust cap they apparently came with during what vintage, I haven't a clue. Cheers, Dave Anderson
