Thanks for the reply.
Kelsey Hayes sounds likely, but I doubt theese wheels were specially made for the small amount Harley servicars represent, maybe 3.000 pairs each year or something.. Could the centers come from an automobile? Which, in that case? I know someone claimed a surplus from 2WD Willys....

I have always through maybe early Willys rims, however if there is an automotive or jeep match they would be just as hard to find or as expensive as servi wheels.

Hi guys new member, the willys overland cj2 is the same brake system, im told as servi car. I have a 58G, i found a jeep source for the wheel cylinders and master cylinders cheap, He has wheels but the center looks huge. Does anyone know if they are 3 quarter or 1 inch wheel cylinders in rear wheels ?. The wheels may fit, center was over 4in. Wac :idea: lks four wheel drive cheap looks same as servi car. Im on a budget after painting the servi Thanks Mad Brad
