So I just scored a 1963 dynohub off Ebay. No idea if it works, but the price was right $23
and the shipping was free. If the hub is DOA, I'm sure someone here could use it for spare parts to get their dyno back on its feet.
If perchance the hub is still functional; what would be the best lighting system to hook up to it? I was considering a set of Tung Lin lights from Yellow Jersey with the headlight bulb replaced with a lower wattage to meet the output of the hub. Are there any LED replacement options for lamps or bulbs that you've found to work will with these old hubs?
I'd probably be taking it to Harris Cyclery to be laced to a new wheel and get new bearings installed, if possible, too.
