I purchased this stuff as a lot for any future builds that I may want to do.

1 set of MAFAC Racer brakes

1 set of Modolo Corsa brakes

1 set of Shimano 600 slotted brake levers

Two outta three ain't bad. You probably won't find much love for the Modolo Corsa brakes. Hopefully you didn't pay too much for them.

Bikes: No-name LH drive track. Also ride an Exxon Graftek, a Masi, a Trek R200 or a RR Boneshaker for fun!

Functionally decent, just not regarded as on the same exalted level with the Campagnolo & Shimano offerings.
Modolo's spat with Greg LeMond left a bad taste in many US fans' mouths BITD. Image is a hard thing to recover.

$30 was not a great deal, but fair enough for a stock of parts for builds. You may even get people to pay more than that for these components, but in my opinion they really are not worth much more than you paid.

The Corsa brakes were on the lower end of the spectrum for Modolo. I had pulled a pair off of a Fiorelli/Columbus Aelle frameset, tried to sell them for cheap on ebay. I had them on there for 3 months, finally donated them to the community LBS. I believe I saw them when I was sorting through the bins a couple of weeks ago; still no takers, haha.
