Subject: [CR]Zeus questions

I just had a guy pick up a Zeus alloy freewheel he bought on ebay. That is one of the nicest classic components in my opinion. Why other makers didn't just imitate that design with steel cogs is beyond me. He likes Zeus and I remembered discussion of some people who deal in NOS or nice condition Zeus parts. Any recommendations I can forward to him?

My only remaining Zeus parts are a set of Olimpic Hubs like http://ebay.com/<blah> are a second line of Zeus components right? They seem to be of rather nice quality considering. I would say they have a better finish and bearings than a Campagnolo Tipo hub. The QRs are a bit rough though. Also like most Zeus I would think these hubs are pretty rare, at least in the US. I vaguely remember a set once 28 years ago on a cheaper Spanish bike that Conrad of Conrad's in NYC had given his nephew which he brought by our shop for adjustment.
