I had some on a Trek 613 I bought new way back in 1982, think I still have them somewhere, they are very nicely finished, excellent quality.
What model number?ss-nyc

It should be stamped into the back of the arms. It may start with "FC-" and should also have the length.
This information can help figure out age/model/etc.

Post it when you have time!

hmm there is only an 'EE' stamped on their back, besides 'via japan' 'length 170mm', and on the chianleaves there's also written 'EE' on the 52 and 'EF'on the 42
No FC marking or anything
thought i would exchange them since they look nice but heavy. (in fact I haven't weighed them)
there's a picture of the whole bike on the way

10x for the comments guys :)
