Not all coaster brakes are equal. The ones coming out of China in outlets like Walmart are to be avoided, in my opinion. Poor materials, too few bearings often coming without grease. I like the old American made Bendix which are easy to come by. Avoid the Mexican made Bendix hubs. Nice project shaping up.
Someday when I grow up I will probably lose interest in toys with wheels, but until then...
