What are these? To me, the front hub looks like a grande flange Maxi Car, rare but not unseen; the rear is unusual, grande flange but with what appears to be a freewheel portion made to remain engaged to the frame drop-out while the hub/wheel itself can be removed. Is this a home brewed hub or am I just unaware of this Maxi Car hub variation? Obviously reminds me of the rear hub of the rare Cinelli Bivalents.

Either way, pretty cool.... and being bid on accordingly....
