The same would be true of any replacement rubber you find for the head - it would all be NOS and your guess is as good as mine how they've been affected by age.

Although I'm skeptical, I have...

+1

If I'm not mistaken, the hub pictured is an HB-6207. These were either 120.5mm for 5sp, or 126mm for 6 speed, but not meant for use with 7 speed. A 7 speed freewheel is 2.5mm wider than 6.

A 7 speed freewheel has 7 sprockets, each about 2mm thick, with 3mm spacers in between. So, the overall width of a 7 speed freewheel's sprockets is about 2mm + 6*5mm = 32mm. A 6 speed freewheel has...

7 speed is spaced at 5mm, while 6 speed is typically spaced at 5.5mm. So, removing one sprocket from 7, reduces the width by 5mm, but then increasing the spacing to 6-speed spacing adds back 2.5mm,...
