Timmy the hoarder/flipper has an interesting bike. MB grand record, vitus tubed F&F, frame is bent ever so slightly with shoddy respray.
The bike has Stronglight 49A cranks in good shape, Some odd centerpull brakes I have never seen and a most unusual hub set. Chrome steel shells about 1-1/2" (38mm) in diameter with large angled aluminum flanges. The guy wants $100.00 for the bike. I guess I should grab it at least for the cranks.. any idea on the hubs? The chrome is compromised but they look interesting and roll like glass.
