Trying to find out where this hub originated from its fitted to a Valante 18x2.15 S40 alloy rim with stainless spokes
Its in my surplus to requirements box but have no idea what it’s off. cheers
Look up the rim suppliers and you may find it from that route. Could be a Talon item.
It looks like the standard late 1930s / wartime hub...Interchangeable front / rear (and sidecar !) on some models, just rear on others.
The 18" rim will not be original spec.
The hub fits postwar rigid frames, prefeatherbed single downtube swinging arm frames and early Model 88's as the milled section for the rear wheel driven speedo drive can be seen in the photo. Most models had 19" rims fitted but some Big 4's of this period had 18" rims.
Thanks for your help, very useful.
