Has anyone ever seen spin 3 spoke wheels with gold hubs? On the non drive side of each they also have threads and a sort of lock ring threaded on it.

Never seen anything other than plain silver myself.

The lockring's to keep the hub in the moulded wheel.
There should be a set of short splines on the drive side which carry the torque.

All the best

Sounds like the later disc version:

Had a screw-on adapter.
Mention of an adapter available in this thread 18 months ago...

All the best,

Yup look like that but the 'adapter' has only 4 holes without thread. So maybe they are lock rings and the adapter is needed

Sounds like you've got Coda/Cannondale fittings:

The rotors are still available.

Otherwise, some 6 bolt ISO adapters could be made.
Sounds like there's a reasonable demand, from this thread on MTBR last year.

The lockrings aren't strictly necessary...American Classic made their hubs without for several years then went to fully machined in ones.
You'd need to brake backwards as strongly as forwards for it to unscrew.
Fixed sprockets need them as the braking force is always trying to unscrew the sprocket.

All the best,
