I'm tidying up! I never thought of it that way...he's lucky I don't charge him a fee for recycling his valuable "scrap" like everyone else does these days...
heh heh.
Seriously.
I'm keeping the hub.

That's a really nice trike. Thanks by the way for the tip on how to change a wheel rim without any pain or upsets

To be perfectly honest, I could not figure out how to get the rim off at first so it seemed the easy way out. Now I know that side hub is screwed onto the axle.
But it IS the easy way to relace a hub.
Much less confusion about which spoke goes where when you have the rim laying on top.
This works just as well on the bench.

UPDATE:
The trike owner came and got his trike, traded it for a gokart, which he wanted me to get running...for about 10 minutes until his buddy brought him a new 212!
So what it boils down to is:
I get to keep the Tecumseh just for fixing the rim!
WIN!

Yup. That baby is going on SOMETHING although I will probably use those HUGE spokes to build myself a bulletproof (and fat guy resistant) back wheel.
