General Information
These hubs were bought in 1984 direct from the Harrogate show in the North of the UK and built as 32 spoke onto the Mavic CX18 rims with plain 14 Gauge spokes they still have today. They are held into the frame with hex head bolts tapped into the hollow axle.
When I first raced on them- there was some questions as to their legality for track racing as they did not have conventional nuts.
There is no markings at all on the rear hub, mavic is embossed on one flange of the front hub. The bearings are adjustable, the lockring is 33mm "Mavic" size.
They have been used for racing on special occasions only since 1984.
