Re: Here I go again,Briggs build
Regarding the Bendix hub. I don't know if they are still being made or not. I get mine from 1950's through 1960's fat tire cruisers and middleweights. Probably on 1970's bikes and maybe later, too, but I'm most familiar with 60's bike and older. Easy to find on ebay and there are schematics which can be downloaded from the net. Parts are still available, but you probably won't need parts for one. Avoid the models made in Mexico as they were not made as well as the USA hubs.
Someday when I grow up I will probably lose interest in toys with wheels, but until then...
