I saw that option and almost bid thinking the same thing you were -- possible Zeus cogs. Apparently they're not. Campy's pretty anal about marking everything they make with one of their trademarks, so absent those I suspect they're not Campy. But Maillard, Everst, and even SunTour made alloy freewheels as well. Hard to tell unless you can match them with a body.
