    As far as I know Ofmega hubs are of nice quality, but not particularly valuable. I've never seen Ofmega cassette hubs, and I couldn't guess what cassette system they would use. Probably an extinct one, and that won't help the value of he rear hub any if it's hard to get cassettes for it.

    I didn't see a picture of a rear hub... Just a front hub, and 2 pics of a box.

    Just to be clear on the terminology: those hubs take a threaded freewheel, not a 'cassette' in the modern usage. In your last picture, on the right hand side of the box, it shows that these hubs were made to work with a 5, 6, or 7 speed freewheel which could either be 'english' (ISO, by far the most common) or 'french' threaded. The box also shows that the hubs were made in various levels of quality (or maybe just finish), which I am not familiar with. For some reason, none of the boxes appear to be checked in the photo.

    They are probably pretty good hubs, not quite up to Campy level.

    I have read elsewhere that Ofmega is the old Magistroni, a manufacturer of decent mid-grade components in the 1960s. My 1981 Bianchi came with low-flange Ofmega hubs with Campagnolo-style oil fittings. The hubs, which currently grace Capo #1, fool lots of folks, because they do past for Campagnolo except under close scrutiny.

    OK Freewheels are a wholre 'nother story, because even thought they are "obsolete" they are still made and readily available making freewheel hubs much more useful than old 6 speed cassette hubs.

    Ofmega hubs

    I also thinK I have Ofmega hubs on my Torelli 1908's steel bike. They appear unmarked, but quick release are Ofmega (and headset on bike and cranks). Any idea how to tell if Ofmega if unmarked? regards
