    Normandy High Flange Flip Flop - Seventies vintage...

    I was surprised to find this set of Normandy High Flange Flip Flop hubs in The Old Shed when out there searching for something else, one day. I have no idea of the value and was wondering if anyone would venture a guess. The appear to have seen little use and are still smooth operating.

    Interesting hubs you don't see many old school English style fip flops in this condition in the US. These where actually common on some higher end British stuff from the 60's and 70's. Some of the Brits liked to run there road bikes as fixed for training in the off season winter. No clue as to price since they are rare enough that very little come up to compare them to market.

    English FW threading?

    A few years back, I sold a pair of Brampton flip flops on the bay for 225$. No kidding. I think the demand has leveled somewhat since then. Prolly about 100$, but you'll get bids and find out if you start them low on the bay.

    I agree that they are pretty few and far between and I happen to like the hub set. I am planning on using them on my 1939 CCM "Road Racer" until I can find the proper Bayless Wiley flip flop unit and there is one on Ebay right now for $125.00. I am willing to trade generously with the seller and he plans on contacting me today.
