Modolo brakes were okay back in the day I never really liked them the actual brake calipers never really worked that great compared to other brands. The Huret shifters look to be all 5 or 6 speed shifters singles.

History note -

the earlier name for Modolo badged products was OMMAS; no relation to OMAS.

they were stocked by Andy Newlands at Strawberry/Fraise/Fragola in Portland Oregon during the late 1970's and early 1980's..

The Modolo model Speedy brakeset was part of a range of sidepull models produced by the company. There were models both below and above so this model was fitted by makers of production road bicycles to some of their midline offerings. Modolo brakes were widely used by Bianchi for example.

The Huret shift levers are of a pattern which enjoyed quite a long production life going back to the 1950's and finally ending in the mid-1970's. The product number for the items shown is 1884. They are for use on a bicycle with single plateau (one chainwheel) derailleur gearing of 3V to 6V.

Hope this has helped you a bit Max. ;)

Hate to hear about the dumpster, I have a mid 80s Bianchi I am rebuilding. The brakes would have been appreciated. Sorry I didn’t see the posting earlier, but I understand the value of needed space.

The dumpster was metaphoric. I moved them into my shipping container full of useless parts.
I still have the parts. If @bikerbluz want to pay for shipping from Canada. I will give them to you if you promise to use them and not resell them. Pm me your address and I'll check on shipping.

I have two Raleigh spites 5 speeds ('69 and '70) with Allvit derailleur that take these. One I saved from the dump is actually missing the shifter entirely. The high tension of this derailleur is infamous for "eating cables" so I could realistically use 1 and a few spares (total 3-4).
