Subject: [CR]Hub, rim, spoke timleine

Before springing for a set of track wheels I've found I'd like to know if the components are of the same vintage and would be found together. They have Campy small flange, 3 piece hubs with wing logo, Super Champion tubular rims with knurled sides and red/gold oval label, and Stella straight-gauge spokes. The seller thinks the hub date code is 61 but it's faint. Don't know if spokes are stainless. I know the knurled rims may be wrong for track hubs, and I can't find in Chuck's timeline that the three piece hubs starting in 1951 came in anything other than a quick release version, so the axles may have been changed or hubs built from shells. Also don't know if the introduction of the one piece aluminum hubs in 1958 means the 3 piece stopped production. Can anyone shed some light?
