After a 20mm hub for a trailer/go kart project. Condition not important but will need to be 36 hole. Looking to spend around 20 quid.
Cheers,
Matt

How about 25 quid? Must be some battered and neglected hub looking for a loving home at the bottom of that box of rubbish in your garage...

Ooh tempting but the other 3 I have are 36 and there's pretty big side loading of the wheels when cornering so 36 should give me that little bit more strength.

Scary amounts I'd imagine! :shock:

Sure you know what you're doing... :wink: Any pics of the project?

It's a long way off yet, I need to save up for a welder and find someone who can turn some 20mm stub axles for the hubs. I've got the paint job sorted though :)

Just thought, maybe people would be interested in forming a Retro Bike team, there'd be loads of handy people on here that could come up with a serious gravity racer. Kick the butt of that bald fella who should have gone to Specsavers from the Gadget Show for sure!

More of a go kart;
These are the ones to beat http://www.formulagravity.co.uk/
This is the "home" of most of the people involved http://www.ukgsa.org/
I'm itching to have a go, looks like loads of fun!
