Mavic 500 / 550 RD Moyeux Rear Hub & Skewer: 32H x 130mm (EXC+)
Considered by many as one of the best vintage hubs ever made, and super rare. The Moyeu 500 hub was introduced in 1975, and quickly morphed into the 500 RD which featured a removable axle and adjustable bearings, a la Phil Wood. The 550RD was the Team or Pro model, and featured skewers with alloy cams/ends, as well as the driveside bearings being placed further out towards the freewheel and anodized axles/shell. This is the 550 model, as it has alloy QR cams, and has anodized shell/axles. These are extremely rare in NIB condition!
The name Moyeu or Moyeux is often attached to the model name, which simply translates to hub.
The hub is excellent to near mint lightly used shape. Bearings feel new. Quite minimal marks or spoke hole wear. Skewer isn't quite as nice, and has scrapes on the body and scratches on the nut, lever blade looks nice.
