Recognize these hubs?

I posted this on the C&V forum but so far I seem to have stumped the crowd. Maybe it makes more sense here anyway.

These hubs are from an early '90's (so I'm told) Ibis that I bought recently. They are cartridge bearing hubs. They look almost like stainless; not sure though. Two of the dust seals say Specialized but I suppose they could be replacements. Or not. There are no other markings. Fwiw the front has a Suntour q/r; rear is nutted.

Both front and rear are 40h.

I'm simply curious about what they are. They seem quite well made.

7 speed freewheel or cassette? (I'm guessing freewheel.) Specialized did make tandem hubs for a while, so that's what they probably are.

Oops, yes, 7 sp fw.

(edit) Someone from C&V has ID'd the hubs as Suntour rebranded as Specialized.

Sansin is the manufacturer. It is common to see them re branded under other names like Suntour or Specialized. Definitely thread on freewheel type.

Sansin. Google Suzue or Sansin & ebay to see NOS examples. Great hubs but limited to freewheel style cassettes.

Anyway looks nice.
