For 500€ you get a new, or a very nice "competizione" hub. A nice single brake hub from 40€.

Making some details while i am waithin for all the small parts, spokes and nipples to come back from threatment.
The rear footrest brackets where bendt, also the brake pedal. A second bracket would make the original stiff enough.
