Re: Here I go again,Briggs build
I have what is really a front wheel hub that I use on the back that is heavy duty. It is since I don't have a pedal crank anymore and have front an rear V-brakes.
The rear stay on one side I did this to make clearance for a replacement sheave that was wider:
First I welded some 7/16" steel in a couple of layers to the outside of the stay to make it as strong as the stay as it were. Then I ground away half of the stay diameter. There was mo warpage as how the order of the modifying process was done.
I have to believe I added enough strengthening as it is over kill. I have to admit though the looks of it are not show piece type.
