So many companies over the years have made "gofast" parts to modify Campagnolo components that it makes it very hard to tell what is original and what has been modified at a later date. OMAS supplied titanium parts to Campagnolo for the Super record derailleur, bottom bracket, and I assume the hubs. Pedrini (Italy) and ICS (Swit.) also modified Campagnolo components and parts and as probably did many other euro-companies I'm not even aware of.
