Pretty hubs pics

Postby RobertFrith » Tue Feb 26, 2013 1:23 am

Seems to me there's room for a hub photos thread.
I tripped over the Curtis Odom hubs site this evening, if you have even a passing interest in polished metal and retro styling...

I guess Rob, as a professional photographer you may have some critique of this one, by Fyxomatosis. It's a little noisy especially with all the reflected detail.... but they are oh.... soo.... shiney

They look like quality but they're not cheap, $660 odd for a set mimicking the prior swiss cheese hubs.

Hi, Flange...

Well, these weren't cheap

I've had a pair of Chater Lea hubs like these, anodised in blue, since 50s.

They aren't common, like Airlites.

Mr Frith,
I do believe it will be remiss of you to not show a certain set of Hardens that may feature on a pretty blue lugless steed in your possession, Sir.... :)
