Typically Enfield from the 1920s, as fitted to Royal Enfield, Norton and others.

Probably worth noting - before we get kicked off into the Kingswood Pub - that the 1932 TT Douglases used an 8" version of this Enfield hub. https://www.douglasmotorcycles.net/index.php?topic=5444.msg32051#msg32051
There were smaller versions, but the 8" hub is much sought after as it was fitted not only to Royal Enfields, Nortons and 1932 TT Douglases, but also to big twin Brough Superiors, Coventry Eagles and other 'superbikes' of the period.

Sorry about the delay in getting back to you on this.
Not quite the answer I was hoping for especially with the rear hub and brake but it is what it is and I'll just have to keep looking for  1930s hubs and brakes I need.

Tanks again
