Campy High-Flange Hub Drillium Sillium

These were gifted to me more than 10yrs ago. I always keep them in a "safe" place, and like a squirrel and their acorns, I always forget where the latest "safe" place is. I can't remember where they went, find them when I'm looking for something else, then move the "safe" place to somewhere I'm sure, this time, I won't forget. Lather, rinse and repeat.

So they turned up again yesterday, and I figured I oughta get some photos before they disappear back into the "safe" ether.

Gifted by someone they were gifted to, don't know where that recipient got it, so we're very far downstream now from who might have done this. I'm pretty sure they weren't drilled to build and ride. If there were any unoccupied horizontal space on my desk, they'd make the perfect actual-desktop paperweight/toy. No free horizontal space exists, however, so the search is on for the next safe place.

FWIW, wall art, in shop, not dining room. Drilled holes are not evenly spaced, I would not use them on a bike.

Some men should not own a drill motor and drill index.

I'm surprised they don't have the extra holes like these.

@pcb - you pull out the most curiously interesting things at times. And your frame sizes aren't far off mine.

Happy Safe Place(s)!

They're touring hubs for the tourer who missed Noah's Ark. Super drainage for riding through The Great Flood and drilled to facilitate those super strong (and rare) 42 hole rims. Amazingly well preserved for 6000 years! (And the secret's out. Campy has been around a while.)

The drilling reminds me of Amelio Riva's style.

Very cool....At speed, no one will notice the slight off spacing and I bet that they would make an interesting whistle.
Best, Ben

Those holes between the webbing are where cracks happen. That is just begging for trouble.

Freehand drillium is like an amatuer tattoo, it seemed like a good idea at the time!
