Mystery Hubs

I have these hubs, came as a spare wheelset for a bike, laced to Mt Matrix narrow 26" (559mm) rims. I do not recognize the logo. Can anyone tell me about these hubs - maker, era, quality, where made, etc? Thanks.

Didn't Bullseye have grubscrewed end caps, rather than a threaded locknutted system?

There were several companies making hubs very similar to this back in the early '90s. your best bet may be to find a stack of old bike magazine and start skimming the adds.

Thanks. Early '90s, probably American, then.

That means they are not right for this particular project I am starting to collect parts for ('86 Peugeot PY10FC).

Well, I'll find a use for them sometime. They seem very light and smooth.

Thanks!

Very nicely finished hubs look high end not sure of ride quality smoothness but I would guess very good. I saw a lot of Sampson hubs on top of the line BMX's bike in the 80's early 90's.
