Subject: [CR]Selle italia hubs

Has anyone ever seen Selle Italia hubs? An internet query showed one forum where the original inquirer had e-mailed Selle and heard back regarding a set that was made for a short time only but others questioned whether they were "knock offs"

The latter seems highly unlikely to me as I don't think Chinese "manufacturers" would "knock off" something that never existed in the first place. (has anyone EVER come across a Chinese knock off of a bicycle component?; this is a wholly different topic)

Anyway, there is a wheelset with SI hubs for sale locally and I was wondering about it. I just found a very clean all original 1981 Schwinn Voyager 11.8 CHROME in my size and I'm thinking about a)going with 700c and b)maybe upgrading some of the parts...

Thanks
