It's FIMOCO not FIMICO, it comes from Tuscany, Italy where I live. Follonica, to be more precise. It's the same brand later renamed Race Factory, mostly known for beautiful CNC'd forks, which worked VERY well.
They were absolutely the best elastomer forks around in 1994-95.
Unfortunately the manager was a nutter and messed everything up.
My friend has this very hub on his Szabo. Apparenty, it 's stiff but bearings are not very smooth.

:D Din't want to be polemic, I'm afraid I tend to misuse block leters sometimes. BTW, where did you find it? Germany or Italy' (I doubt it was exported in other countries other than Germany)
