That'd be interesting if someone would go to such length to clone a Campy crankset, and do it so poorly even! Can you point me to some photos of the Ofmega cranks of interest? Googling isn't turning up anything for me.

I just pulled off a Pista drive side arm from one of my bikes, and I'm starting to convince myself that these cranks could really be the real deal . Check out this photo:

As I mentioned before, note the concentric machining circles sort of unique to Campagnolo... but now check out the spindle hole! It's identical as far as I can tell.
