I am planing on building some retro tubular wheels with old style hope hubs NOS if possible

I found a front on eBay the other day but missed the auction end.

I would like a something similar to this with the coloured flanges. Fat or Skinny.

Not sure about rear probs Hope, any suggestions.

I have a blue flanged/ti middle 32 hole front fatso hub in good condition with fairly new bearings in that you can have for £25 posted. If it's of interest I'll take a pic.

I've got a matching pair of red-flanged, titanium-centered Hopes surplus to requirements... the rear is part of a built up Mavic CPX wheel. I also have a set of new red Hope Mono hubs, the rear is still boxed.

Both hubs are 32H and the front is the middle-sized "suspension" version. It's no different to any modern road hub in size and would look fine on a road wheel.

I'd need to unlace the rear as it's currently built-up. The original front hub is the skinny version, which I still have built into a matching front, but it has cracked.

The front hub is right next to me and doesn't look like it has seen much action at all.

£55 posted for both hubs? I'll get some pictures if you're interested.

Cheers for the pictures.

the problem i've got is that i have a 36hole gp4 rim to build on for the rear so this hub wouldn't do, i also ideally wanted the lightweight version of the front hub if i could get one.

If i could get hold of some 32hole rims then i'd probably have the rear off you.

I'll post back if my situation changes. Cheers
