Cool free shiny things

I love yard sale season:
Found in a "free" box by the curb.

Nice! I'd love a set of lights like that, but would rather have one with a sidewall dynamo. Wouldn't be too hard to put on

I've got a dyno somewhere. I want to see if the battery takes a charge first.

that is a dynamo? zoom out a bit and show the therside too. does it mount on the fork and rub the wheel like a SKU Speedo?

A hub is kind of an odd thing to show up at a yard sale, especially that one not being all that old.

Can those Rolf hubs be built up with normally spaced rims?

I'm gonna say that Rolf hub was free for good reason. Might make a cool paper weight though.

the hub's too light to be a good paperweight, but the battery isn't. as for another view of the dyno:

It's one of these. Mounts to the frame, gets friction off the sidewall; there's one just like it on my Peugeot:

It shouldn't be that hard to figure out, right?

BTW, the hub fit right snugly in the Univega supra sport mixte frame that just happens to be hanging in my garage...but that's a lot fewer spoke holes than I'm used to seeing. Looks kinda "modern."
