I aquired a 16" rear wheel and hub that I thought was the old star hub, but looking closely at it the other day I see that it is not. Instead of the five threaded holes for the "star" bearing retainer, there are just two non threaded holes. Other wise it is a drum brake wheel, and my drum fits on it. But I can see the inside of the hub is "different".
I fear it might be an older Sportster wheel? Or is it a newer, drum brake Big Twin wheel? If so, will/would still it work...? What spacers would I use to make it work? Or is it the same wheel with just different bearings? Help!
I'm using a Paughco rigid frame with factory, stock "type" axel plates for early style mechanical brakes.
