rolig,
If you are looking for a brand name, in addition to "factory" parts, I've also used both the Alto and Barnett discs and don't have anything bad to say about either of them. As far as hubs go, if you go aftermarket and have the bucks to spend, the Primo Pro-clutch is hard to beat. Very smooth and reliable. Instead of loose balls or rollers it uses a big sealed bearing.
On my '54, I'm running one of the old model Primo clutch and belt drives hidden behind the primary cover. To be honest with you, I probably wouldn't have parted with the big bucks to buy a brand new Primo setup outright, but I got it as part of a good deal and I like it very much :) .

Geo.
