    Resilion Hubs

    Hello Everyone,
    I have a set of Resilion steel / chrome plated hubs - high flange 40 spoke rear, 32 front.
    The front hub is pretty straight foward, but the rear has three sets of threads - on one
    side for standard threaded frewheel, while the other side has two sets of threads in a stepped configuration - don't have a clue what these are for.
    Does anyone have any information on these hubs ? My guess is they were made in
    the 50's or early 60's. Would there be any collector value ?

    Thank you for your attention in this matter.

    I tried to cut & paste the image with no luck.

    The stepped threads are for a track (fixey) cog. The cog screws on first. The a lockring is threaded onto the smaller set, which is also, reverse threaded to resist the unscrewing forces of stopping pedaling.

    As for collector value, I doubt much, but this isn't a forum that has a lot of interest on the whole, with road stuff. There are of course, individuals who may appreciate it, but it's more about dirt here, and fixeys in the dirt, suck.
