    I have a 1970 CT70 that I'm restoring for my grandkids. I have it fully functional except the brakes. The hubs are worn in excess of 113mm. Needless to say she goes good but don't stop too well. Can't let the kids ride her like that. Where can I find new hubs? Good used hubs might be an option also. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Hubs with this much wear are not common. NOS hubs are getting harder to find but, the major vendors (dratv, NEVC, chp) may have them. CMSNL definitely will but getting them here from the Netherlands isn't free. Decent used specimens are anything but rare...feebay is where you'll find the biggest selection.

    Thanks for the info. I'm familiar with CHP. I've purchased several parts from them. I have also checked out CMSNL. I'm not familiar with dratv or NEVC. I tried to look up these sites but was unsuccessful. Could you post links to these sites? Thanks again for your help!

    I have one NOS rear hub that I will sell for what I have in it, which is $90.

    Just double checked. It's "old dealer stock", still new but I don't have the part number tag. If you're interested, will take a few pics and post them here for you to see.

    FWIW, AllenP just offered you a screaming deal on an NOS hub.

    Grandkids. That's what got me started as well. Anyhoo, here's a few pics of the hub. It has never been used but does have a few scratches from being moved around in a parts bin for a few decades or 2.

    That is correct. Shoot me a PM with your zip and I'll check the shipping costs.
