I was hoping you would post it Dean. It's definitely an early Model A & my hypothesis is that brake arm was designed for a specific bike. What bike? I have no clue but I'd love to know.

Hey Gary, you said my hub was 1905-1909, it has the concave shell. The right side of the axle is 3/8" and the left side is 5/16". It appears to be original. Have you seen them built that way? Thanks Tom

I cut this (then very rusted) hub from a wood rim a few days ago, missing the arm and oil port on the end cap. I performed a forensic cleaning/polishing and this is what you see.
Is this a model no. 7 Corbin? The bronze arm I already had. After disassembling and putting it back together, there were a few parts left over, a thick round disc (looks like an 8 pointed star) and two small short flat spring steel parts. Where do they go? Where can I get a correct arm?

I'm subscribed to this thread so I can find it with ease. Also we could request from a moderator that it gets a sticky. Not sure the rules on what can and cannot get a sticky.

I just received my 1936 Mead bicycle with original paperwork (catalogues, warranty, hanger tags...everything) and I just solved where your avatar comes from!

In relation to the evolutionary jump from fixed to coaster brake, I am particularly interested in finding physical specimens of either of these two examples of (or others) early coaster and brake attachments for fixed gear wheels.
