Greetings all. I picked up a rear wheel at the local dump a while back and was wondering if you guys had any information on it. It is a campagnolo high flange of some sort with the following near the threads, "England 1.370" x 24 tpi BSC". 32h. They happened to be laced to some Matrix ISO tubulars.
I am no hub expert to begin with so any information would be appreciated. Here are some pics.
no Oiler clip, Nuovo Tipo?
could you take a full on side view? it would help
ID the hub.

Looks like small flange Victory or Triomph from mid '80s to me.

ah thats better. . .
definately small flange hub. From the logo I'd say Victory also.
Campy put a date on the hub locknuts you should be able to date
the hubs from that.

Thanks for all the responses. I am not seeing any date on the locknuts but that is ok.
What type of cassette would this take? Also, someone drilled an extra whole in the rim that is not occupied by any nipple/spoke. Does this make it worthless? Also, is there any market for these Victory hubs - I certainly would not plan on using this - especially since its tubular.

That hub uses a standard British thread freewheel. Six speed was what it was intended for, but seven was getting common then. Is the "extra hole" in the rim for the Presta valve stem?
The hub isn't all that valuable; maybe $15 or so to someone wanting a Victory hub.

Yeah, I of course thought that the extra hole was for the valve stem - I just don't know anything about tubulars - but I guess they would need valve stems as well ;). Sorry, my misconceptions of tubulars sounds stupid. Thanks for the help guys.

This one is probably ready to cut out, note how the outside spokes adjacent to the freewheel threads are slightly dog legged, a sign that a chain got jammed with an overshift.
Date code on the locknuts will not be visible unless one takes that side apart, they are stamped on the compression surface.
