Interesting high flange hub, no idea of maker

https://imgur.com/a/Xgln825

Looks late 50s/early 60s, steel barrel, alloy flanges. Italian? French?

Mystery 80s road crank, possibly Edco Comp or Mavic?

Picked this up at the local co-op since the price was right. 144 BCD. Assumed it was a Mavic, but all the Mavic aero cranks I can find online have hidden ring bolts. Looks fairly close to an Edco...

Mavic 1st gen hubs question

A friend (who is not a bike nerd) has a nice wheelset with the older version Mavic hubs which he is willing to get rid of, but he's a couple hours from me and I don't trust his bike knowledge enough...

Raleigh 60s/70s anniversary logo?

Found this chainguard while cleaning out my folks' garage. I dimly recall that this logo was an anniversary special of some kind, but I can't seem to find what year it came from, and Googling...

Bizarre vintage mini English frame

I bought this at a bike shop cleanout many years ago because I liked the color and it was $5. Based on the general construction and the 'Made in England' BB cup, I assume it's a Raleigh or similar,...

Sugino Mighty crank variants

So, I'm trying to figure out two things with regard to this crank (https://imgur.com/gallery/mNXOebn)

1. What's the actual model? It doesn't fit the Velobase listings for either 'Sugino Mighty' or...

TA bottom bracket marked 'P FG'?

This is a TA French threaded bottom bracket off a weird 1980s Motobecane mountain bike. Came with a 175mm TA triple crank. I'm curious as to what 'P FG' means--I poked around the web and found a...

Yeah, the font looked similar to the FB hubs I've come across, and to the stamped letters on the spindle you posted pics of. Thanks!

Fratelli Brivio BB spindle?

Picked up this 'FB' cottered BB spindle the other day. I am assuming that it's a Fratelli Brivio, since the logo looks similar to those on Fratelli Brivio cranks and hubs I've seen, and the dimpled...

That's a good frame. Not as nice as the lugged 750s from a couple years earlier (which IIRC were the same frame as the 520, but with an upright cockpit and a step lower components), but probably a...

Does this early 90s Gary Fisher really have 140mm spacing?

Picked up an early 90s (by the looks of it) Mt Tam frame. The rear drops measure to 140mm. I'm assuming that since it's a steel frame, it will compress to take a 135mm hub...but then again, this era...

If that's your actual bike in the pic, that's very clean and the basket is nice, if you don't mind waiting a little, I think you could get $200 out of it.

Trying to ID lugged road frame with Campy DOs

Friend gave this to me. It's light, nice lugs, Campy dropouts that for some reason scream 80s to me. No visible serial number. For some reason I have the feeling this might be a high end Gitane from...
