Anyone have any info on these hubs? Apparently they are campy knockoffs but I have no other info on them other then they are pre-NJS. Are they any good? I have an opportunity to pick these up laced to some nice hard anodized hoops. Thanks!
im inclined to say suntour superbe pro, but im not certain.

Sanshin ("Sunshine") made SunTour's hubs in the 80s. Before that, they made a wide range of hubs, including keirin hubs certified by "BIA" (the predecessor to NJS).
Some of their hubs were pretty generic, but any with a "BIA" stamp ought to be pretty good.
I have three or four sansin hubs in rotation and they've held up pretty well.
