Does anyone have these hubs or know about them?

I've never heard of them until this week. I'm struggling to find information about Grimeca's bicycle production. The company is Italian and were mostly involved in motorbike parts - including work with Morini (dreamy 350 Sport), Ducati (the beautiful trio of 860GT, 750SS, & Desmo), Cagiva, Honda & Yamaha. They also supplied the wire spoked wheels for the Audi A1 Heritage too.

Maybe it was a sub contract out to another bicycle hub manufacturer?

Any info or advice is much appreciated.
Thanks.

Thanks for this midlife, appreciated. I looked at Velobase for Grimeca hubs and didn't find anything:blush:.

This 27" wheelset (from the 70s?) has the Grimeca hubs - photos 1-3 and 6-8 show them: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/VAN-SCHOTHORST-ALUMINIUM-GRIMECA-27-WHEELS-1970s-VGC-CAMPAGNOLO-FIT/353150892648

I'm wondering if it's an original design, or sub contract from another company, or copy of an existing hub?

If Grimeca are/ were making parts for Audi through to Yamaha etc, maybe it's fair to think these are high quality hubs?
