The easiest way to date this model of Regina freewheels is by the production date stamped right there on the body - in this case "10 ITALY 80", or October 1980.

Regina still advertised 1,3,4,5,6, and 7-speed freewheels in their catalogs as late as 1982.

original message... A fellow V-CC member has shown me a Regina Corsa 3 speed 3/32nd freewheel hub that I have not seen before. There is a photo of it at http://ntlworld.photobox.co.uk/album/1571123 . It appears to be all original, although the spacing between the sprockets is wider than I would have expected to find on a 4 or 5 speed hub. Can anyone please tell me anything about this hub, particularly what period it was from, and if it was designed for any special application.
