Shimano Sante rear hub question

Doing a build on a Centurion Turbo with Sante. I know there is a four year time gap between components and frame, but the midnight blue, silver, and chrome of this frame should go awesome with Sante. I have everything but the rear hub to start the build. Even have a Sante freewheel. I've been looking for over a month and can't even find a pictue of a Sante hub for free wheels. All I can find are Uniglide free hub versions. Am I chasing a white whale? Did Shimano even make a threaded version of that hub? I've got a 600 rear hub I plan to use if the Sante version does not exist.

Hello Zmitchel, welcome to the forums. Yes shimano made both FW and cassette models of this hub. Did you look on ebay?

I've never seen a freewheel version of that hub but I had two Sante freewheels ready to go on one if I ever found one. I gave up the hunt and went with the cassette version hub since they are relatively easy to find.

hmmm, i recently sold a complete Sante group on ebay that included the rear freewheel hub and matching cassette. so yeah, they are out there for sure.

if you need more Sante components I have a pretty big stash, just no hubs or headsets left unfortunately.

thank you! I looked in both current and completed auctions, couldnt find one. The Shimano brochures from the era only show the Uniglide freehub version...guess that is what they were pushing. Picked up a NOS front hub for real cheap on eBay. I'll keep looking and put the rest of the bike together...hopefully find the hub before we get too far into spring.

I suspect the freewheel hub was a one year thing in '87 then upgraded top freehub ,so they are likely pretty scarce.

I do hope your not going to hold your build up for hub. I would just use some other wheelset until you score the freehub. Depending on the condition of your FW you may be able to sell that for a enough to buy a freehub type.

Actually I plan to start the build as soon as we get a relatively warm and dry day around here (don't like spraying the framesaver indoors, the frames end up dripping gunk). If I don't have the rear hub by riding time, I've got an old 600 wheelset with Mavic GL 330s that I'll use until I can find the Sante rear. I've thought about buying a Sante Uniglide rear, but then I would want a Sante Uniglide cassette to go with it. We'll see what ebay turns up over the next couple of months.

Would this be a 105 UG HG compatible or a straight HG

Probably not "Sante" but Loose Screws is selling a bunch of 6-7 sp UG cassettes.. https://www.loosescrews.com/index.cgi...d=785198729202 I just bought one for my Sante 7 speed hub.

By default maybe AC/DC but HG since that is what my shimano hubs are.

Personally, I've never seen a freewheel compatible Sante hub. While there are a lot of Sante freewheels, I've always assumed they existed because Sante was originally conceived as a mini-group (freewheel, derailleurs, shifters and chain) intended as an SIS upgrade for existing bicycles. However, there have been other cases of uncatalogued Shimano components, most notably the Dura-Ace center-pull brakes.
