Winners 200 Front Hub Disassembly

Anyone have any information on how to take one of these apart? Before I scrap it (not going to deal with pressing bearings every 2 months) maybe there is something I'm overlooking.

There is no hex socket in the axle.
There is no place for a cone wrench to attach.
There is nowhere I see that would take a proprietary tool.

I don't see any other information on the hub (like MFG?).

Side question for historians: What is the origin of this hub? I was told it's from the mid/late 80s but would like more information if anyone has it.

I take it noone else could find info. Confirmed through destruction that those hubs have press fit bearings and were intended to last only as long as the bearings; probably part of the reason they're not in business anymore. A shame, it was a beautiful hub.

I had never heard of the hub either, nor could I find anything with googling. Nothing. To me a hub is only as beautiful as it is rebuildable...
