Phil Wood first gen 48 hole flip flop hub?


What's the value of a set of matching 700c Super Champion 48-hole wheels tied and soldered to matching first gen Phil Woods hubs, the rear hub appears to be flipflop freewheel. Is it possible that the rear hub is the appropriate spacing for a road bike or would this have been a tandem hub?

48 spokes. Threading on both flanges (for a brake on the left). Bolt-on axle. Sounds like a tandem wheel to me.

My guess as I cannot tell the thread direction on the off freewheel side, a Phil Disc Brake compatible hub.

Looks just like the hub we have on the back of our tandem. The hub was purchased in the late 70s and the threading on the NDS was for the option of later adding Phil's disc brake but we never did.

So is the warranty still good? Don't think I could find a receipt anymore. But the hub has started making a few intermittent noises lately.
