Magistroni I have only seen as forged steel 3-arm cranks, very, very, well made. I covet a pair if the price is right. I am convinced they also private-labelled for the likes of Atala, so that some Atalas of the era (and others) had Magistroni cranks but "house" stampings for brans.
Pivo I can't remember seeing as anything except as stems on French bikes. Quality of finish was right up there with Atax.
