Handcycle Hubs Needed

We have a teammate that rides a Topend Force and we're looking at tinkering with his ride.a bit. He wants to start by building some new wheels and has decided he wants a set of American Classic bolt-ons. Unfortunately, these seem to have been discontinued. Does anyone have a line on where to get some or maybe has a pair they would be willing to part with? Thanks in advance.

Other performance hubs are likely acceptable. Our rider is approximately 160lbs.

How are they different from ordinary wheelchair hubs?
