Parts are trickling in. First to arrive is a NOS Campagnolo Centaur front hub. It was amazingly affordable from an online retailer, so why not? Anything Campagnolo works for me. It even came in what I assume was the original packaging, with some literature included: a warranty pamphlet, and instructions on how to use the quick release skewer in twelve different languages. Umm, okay....

I donít really know anything about Centaur, though. What the heck is going on here? Three sides with flats, and the fourth side with a small hex bolt....?

Today I also disassembled the Sachs 8-speed freewheel, as it was feeling a bit dry and rough. Following a thread from last year, I was able to put pastorbobnlnh ís advice to good use, and successfully disassembled, cleaned, lubricated, and reassembled the unit. First time ever!

And hereís the pile, with the NOS Sachs rear hub. Yes, the front hub is gray and the rear hub is silver. I donít really care....
