Subject: [CR]Mafac Question

Whilst in Paris a few years back, a kindly shop owner scrounged around the back of his store and sold me two sets of Mafac brakes. Both are NOS. perfect shape.

1) Mafac" Raid"center pulls (about the size of my first apartment)

2) Mafac "Competition" center pulls w/ black label & gold lettering

the two levers are gold plated and take either the supplied gummed hoods or these cool black rubber inserts.

I'd like to know more about both.. year of manufacture, reputation, and use by members of this group. etc.

BTW the Carlton free brake give away is over.. wish i had sets for everyone.
