Rear hubs/bearings?

40 year rule possibly, BUT that is only allowed if 'standard parts, not mahooosively changed from factory spec etc' :shock:

After looking today and having my suspicions, please be warned that the silver se5a is carrying a false identity, and should be regarded as spares only!!
