Way out of my comfort zone on this one. Just picked this up and Im not sure what to do with it.
Has mismatched wheels, im guessing theyre both wrong based on fender clearance.
Havent found any photos of these with fenders so maybe theyre wrong too, based on brace construction.
Headtube seems to have threads for a different headbadge so maybe this is just a pile of parts.

Somebody point me in the right direction, please!

Looks Miami to me. Not sure what is going on with that little screw in the head tube but I think badge is likely correct and original to bike. Stem is a Wald 3 but bars, seat, and fenders could be original. I could use that pump! What is rear hub? Front rim not correct and of course kick stand not original. V/r Shawn

Thanks guys. I spent some hours on the google machine but not a lot turned up for hudson specifically.

I found this chainwheel on Crown bikes but couldnt find it on a Miami (did see a slightlier fancier one).

Do you think I should keep the fenders on? Is there a specific front wheel i should keep an eye out for?

Chainring on this 1915 Miami Bull Dog very similar ...
60-Teeth .. half-inch pitch.

Wow, i wish i found that! Thanks for your help! I found a few with that chainring pattern but the smaller holes between the “shapes” on mine are simple circles versus diamonds on the other miami bikes I found.

Fauber was an Indiana thang.

Except for the stem and front wheel I'd leave this bike the way it is. Here is a pic of the front hub of my Flying Merkel. V/r Shawn
