Tom, I dare not venture to EBAY from my work computer, it's a no-no! BUT, I can tell you that Campagnolo had hubs made in France some time in the laet 1950's or early 1960's. I understand that Tullio was looking to avoid some tarrif issues and to save some money by having some bits made in France. There is a mid-flange hub that would mate to these. Looks unusually simillar to Pierre Malliard's products. Small circular cut outs like an early Normandy but with a Campagnolo sheild logo. I have the set...it is a nice conversation item for after ride show and tells at the farwest Milano clubhouse.

Regards, Matty "Le Tullio" Gorski (currently in) Anaheim, CA USA
