I first saw them just about 1973. Heinz Linke had a pair or two in his shop in Lakewood, OH. He sold mostly Peugeot and Mondia, but even a Cinelli SC he had for sale had Universal, not Campy. There was a club centered around the shop, mostly Europen immigrants or their children. One or two guys had sprung for Campy SP's on their PX-10s. But they were, I think, $50 when MAFAC was less than $20 (maybe more like $10) and a complete new PX-10 cost $200. I went with the then-new Dura-Ace SP's on a LeJeune I bought from Heinz about 1974. Don't remember the price, but definitely cheaper than Campy. Either one needed a rear drop bolt on a French frame.
