    I believe this is original hardware to Pope/Columbia chainless but I was expecting to see something to that effect stamped in the arm. Upon cleanup I don't see anything, any thoughts from you other chainless owners?

    If aftermarket, anyone know the make?

    Columbia shaft drive with coaster is what I'd go with . I do believe one of the only ones to use ball end spokes

    Looks like the Columbia to me. If there is an actuator sitting under the cover I could definitely use a picture of it!

    Very cool! Now I have to find where I put that hub. Thank you very much- a decent picture has been the missing bit of information for a long time.

    Yes Columbia hub. A while back there was a Wheelman who had spokes for these. You might check the wheelmen web site to get more info.

    About 15 years ago I bought 2 sets of 72 NOS ball end spokes from a Guy named Tim Elder. As he was into Chainless Columbia's at that time.If my memory is correct I paid 300. a set.I needed them for 2 Columbia bikes mens and ladies.Bike are gone now. I know the Mens is In New Zealand as I traded it for a1896 Massey Harris bike .
