OK, do these look Modoloish to you? With the eccentric above and the cable stop below, didn't Zeus, Weinmann at the least do that as well as Modolo. Or are these in fact MAFACs as described? I am reminded of MAVICs later 'gruppo' where the brakes were Modolos with a Mavic logo laser etched on the caliper stirrup.

Here's the accomanying description:

"Freins [brakes]: Spidel Mafac LS2, poignees [levers] Mafac Course 2000"

Check out those cool "Fromage Suisse" lg. flange hubs in one of the early '50s catalogues too. Described as Peugeot hubs I believe in the accompnying text, might those be Peugeot-branded FBs? They look like they could be to me...

But I Dunno,
