I've got what I think is a model 50 also, but without the badge. Could you post a photo of your Model 50 badge and the front hub so I know what to look for?

I'll take a picture or two of the headbadge tonight for you. My front wheel is all wrong. It has a flanged edge for bent spokes and it should be a straight pull like your rear hub. Ill see if I can find a picture of a front hub for you too.

gifarmer I think maybe the rear hub on your bike is a Cleveland ball end type spoke hub. But don;t think the fork is Cleveland.
Just my take on it. Also those ball end spokes are rarer than hens teeth.

So, would a Cleveland rear hub be incorrect? Or, are you thinking I need a different front fork? I've got a set of repro ball-end spokes that I bought about 20 years ago from a guy at a bike swap but I haven't found a front hub to use them with.
