I'm looking to get some NOS hubs to use with a screw-on singlespeed freewheel, the ones I'm using right now are far from perfect and I will not be able to rebuild them (the hub body itself is worn on the rear).

The seller says these are Ursus brand. Were these any good?

    They look pretty generic to me. The only odd thing is the brass-colored bits. Jul 17, 2020 at 17:36

Ursus is a real brand, even though you don't see a lot of them in the US. Most of their current stuff is fairly high-end, but the ones you're showing look pretty basic (and fairly old- by the 90's hubs were mostly cassettes, not freewheels). Should be fine for road riding/ commuting as long as you know how to lace a wheel. Otherwise the cost isn't going to be worth it and you should just get a pre-built wheel or wheelset.
