Here is the hub, I am not sure what vintage this hub is:
Here is the good side:
Here is the bad side missing the dust cap:
Does any one know where I can find a dust cap for this hub? Or perhaps something suitable to use. I've been riding this wheel like this for a while but would really like to protect those bearings. Thanks.

Try www.campyoldy.com in the UK. They seem to have everything Campy, even small parts.

Looks like might be C-Record.

Expensive hubs, cheap beer!!
+1 on C-Record. Campy makes a special tool to remove those caps w/o damage. Given the prestige of the group these caps might expensive.
Set up a Saved Search on Ebay with the appropriate description. It might take months, but sooner or later...

I need exactly the same dustcap, so if you get 2 offers send one my way! Campyoldy seems to have just one for sale and it's for the rear, so no-go, plus he wants 8 pounds for it, plus shipping (even with the weak pound that's a bit too high for me). I saw a hub with 2 good caps at a swap last year and was tempted but I let it pass...$40.

Wow, I can't imagine how hard those are to find, it took me over a year to find a cheep rear C-record skewer and I found it in piece... in other words I located the skewer itself and the nut seperately! BEst of luck! Nice hubs though!

There were a couple of Campag Hub dust shields on ebay at the moment - haven't got the details but they are listed under Vintage Bicycle parts here Sporting Goods (http://shop.ebay.co.uk/items/Sporting-Goods__W0QQ_sacatZ382) > Outdoor Sports (http://shop.ebay.co.uk/items/Outdoor-Sports__W0QQ_sacatZ159043) > Cycling (http://shop.ebay.co.uk/items/Cycling__W0QQ_sacatZ7294) > Vintage (http://shop.ebay.co.uk/items/Vintage__W0QQ_sacatZ158999) > Vintage Parts & Accessories (http://shop.ebay.co.uk/items/Vintage-Parts-Accessories__W0QQ_sacatZ56197)
On second thoughts, the Record one is just the oil hole clip from the middle of the hub. It's worth contacting Nigel Scott at Campyoldy as his stock is turning over all the time and he might have some old ones that the part needed can be salvaged from - he tends to list New Ols Stock or As New condition items only. Or try your LBS in case they've got an old parts bin?
Hope you find what you need.

Yeah I kind of thought this would be a bugger to find. Maybe I'll have to fashion one out of the cheap beer can :)
But seriously I was thinking of making one out of gasket material or something. I suppose it's ok to ride it with out the cover, what do you think?
Thanks for your advice.
Also when looking for this what is the proper name is it dust cover, dust cap, dust shield?
not in the wet or the mud. the bearings are exposed. But it'd be okay in the dry. I have a wheel like that (missing a dustcap) that has been used off and on for years.

Old Nuovo Record dust caps fit, if you don't care how it looks.
