Inspite of what others have said, these levers (according to the Ebay ad) are machined from 6061-T6 billet aluminum.
Being as I have some experience with metal, that is some decent stuff and would be perfectly acceptable for making levers. It's possible that the fact that they are probably chinese made could account for the price difference between these and Pazzos, etc.
It could also be that they skimped on the mechanism part of the levers.

Not having actually seen these I would say that they are likely to be decent quality.

I've heard a ton of good things about those ebay knock offs for $50.
