You need better closer pictures unless you are trying to make it harder than necessary. Roger

Looks like a Bullseye to my untrained eye.

could be another USA brand (like American Classic) but we need a better pic for a better guess.

+1 on bullseye/am classic. Also looks like a nukeproof.

Where'd you get it? What bike was it on?

The zip ties give it away. They hold a plastic piece that served as part of a crude sort of cyclometer back in "the day." In combination with the blue surgical steel tube that serves as the hubs' shells, I know that this was a one-off proprietary design built near Shorewood Hills, Wis. by none other than Eric Heiden when he was racing for 7-Eleven. They are worth $120 on eBay.

The rims look like GEL 330 with alloy nipples, I don't think those wheels came stock on anything.

I grew up just a hop, skip and a jump from there in Spring Harbor. I used to ice skate out of the the Eric Heiden warming house in Shorewood just blocks from my grandmother's house.

Never knew he was making hubs...

This came of a 1971 Cinelli track bike of the same color scheme

MAVIC GL330 Tubulars With Wobler Invulnerables


and another

Had I known it was off a track bike from 1971, I surely wouldn't have suggested a high zoot 90's MTB marque. Bike boom bikes aren't really my thing.

He only made five hubs, one for each of the lord of the rings, and these are examples of they. (Cheers to Madison.)

this thread is so convoluted and confusing.

1) i agree that they look like Bullseye hubs. nothing suggests otherwise
2) WTF does the zip-tied cyclometer piece have ANYTHING to do with the hub? i don't see how that in ANY way indicates what kind of hub they are
3) Eric Heiden made hubs? and only 5? and they are only worth $120? i call shenanigans
4) i have no idea what this phrase means "Sold for $4200 Eric Heidens cousin he didn't know Eric made hubs"
5) you pulled a hub with a 6-speed cassette off a track bike? how the hell or why did they do that? did they spread the frame? were they using a derailleur?

Old Bullseye hubs have a small allen key set screw to hold the outer collars in place...at least the non-QR style did....but I have seen a few pics of QR style hubs with the set screw.

Set screw: Probably Bullseye
No set screw: Probably American Classic. Did AC make a large diameter shell front hub?

surgical steel is 440C stainless. The center of that hub is anodized aluminum.. Track bikes don't use QR hubs at 126 spacing. That is not a "one of five" hub and it was made by a bald guy that smells like cutting oil, not a speed skater. I think it's a bullseye.

I think that relates to somone not reading the original question I knew what the cyclometer hub was for...

Indeed a lot of shenanigans not a lot of answers noted...but this is a hobby and the disruptive ones finally give way to an educated person giving a really good answer I guess after the play is over someone takes pity on the OP and finally answers the question Thanks John...

I was being ironic as both statements were in the shenanigans (play) you were talking about

For a second I thought you were talking about Shorewood, south of "Whitefolks Bay" north of Milwaukee....
Those were the good ole days when a lot of great speed skaters/cyclists/X-country skiers came from SE WI. which also helped get me seriously into cycling and X-country skiing in my college days in the Dairy State. I dunno when we'll see the likes of Brent Emery, Eric and Beth Heiden again from those parts.
