British Hubs (BH) Airlite rear hub, in production from the 1930s to the 1950s. Made from aluminium/steel and weighing in at 230 grams - pretty lightweight for a rear hub at that time. A fine choice for keeping your vintage bike authentic, but also great for any other compatible bike too.

If you're taking part in L'Eroica or any other vintage event, this is fully compliant - so rest assured, the pre-1987 police won't lock you up for having the wrong rear hub!

The hub's been carefully cleaned, thoroughly serviced by one of our mechanics and graded as good condition, but do take a good look at the detailed photos so you can see the cosmetic condition before you buy.
