Even when well done, taking old parts and putting on new engravings and drilling new holes is fake, IMO. I suspect a lot of these parts have their anodising removed to hide faults.

I am still amazed that people are buying this stuff AND leaving positive feedback. Well you know what the say about a new one being born every minute...

In the butcher's defense he does seem to be getting better.

I've seen brakes that came on Ciocc with indents in the front to save weight (I've a pair) but only the brake levers were ever pantographed...

He's getting better indeed but work is still a bit uneven/thick, one day, proper forgeries? ;)
