I have seen at least one set of obviously-Modolo brake calipers with Mavic branding. Looked to be Modolo Professionals or Master Pros. They appear on e-bay every so often.

Made in France, I assume. Who made their brakes? I remember buying a pair of Galli Titanios (or somesuch) about 1977, substantially cheaper than Campy, with dreadful modulation and feel.

Anyone know any company history? Was this a gimmick by the French manufacturers, to try to take market share from Campy by offering another "Italian" product?

While I wonder about all this, who made Mavic brakes? I've spotted them in their original manufacturer name in the past, but I don't recall.

Cheers,
