1930s wheel hub details
« on: 23 Aug 2022 at 09:21 »
Hi there I'm so far having no luck getting hold of either wheel hubs or brake units for my Model Z project bike. I have it on good authority that the hubs are common across a range of models from the 30s but still no luck. Does anybody out there have any dimensional details for these hubs as if so I may be able to get a pair manufactured to at least give the frame wheels allowing me to mount the completed engine and gear box and move on.
I'm hoping I get the sort of response I've had in the past for a number of rare components which has allowed me to get this far.

regards
Chris

Chris,

There is a article HERE on an improved axles design that has dimensions of the 'standard' #9787 hub. The axles depicted are for the 500/600cc Aero models, but the same idea can be applied to Model Z with suitable changes to lengths, if you fancy the change to sealed ball bearings.

Thanks for that Doug as usual you are an immensely helpful mine of information and without your help my Z wouldn't be anywhere near the condition it is now.
