These are not Modolo. I have a pairs of Mavic/Modolo sidepulls as well as a pair of Mafac LS sidepulls identical to the ones in the picture, which are genuine 100% Mafac made. Of course the Mavic /Modolo are very nice also.

I am reminded of MAVICs later 'gruppo' where the brakes were Modolos with a Mavic logo laser etched on the caliper stirrup.
