Tam, they are indeed very similar. The question becomes, who made those spokes for Schwinn? Another lister, Krister Katsogiannos, wrote me off-list to say that he thought the spokes on the Colnago Junior were made by Berg Union. I can't tell if the stampings are different, and I am inclined to believe they are the same. So...is the four-leaf-clover in fact the Berg Union symbol?

I've never seen spokes like these before and I'm wondering if they are in fact Colnago branded spokes, or if the stamp is a 4 leaf clover (it's hard to tell), representing some other brand. Does anyone know?
