    I got this wheel with a pile of drag bike parts. It has no markings, but I was told by a guy at a swap meet that it was for a motorized bicycle where the engine was in the hub. It's 23 inches tall and 1.5 inches wide.

    What do you think it's off of? Have any pictures of anything similar? Thanks in advance! IMG_4190.jpg IMG_4191.jpg IMG_4192.jpg IMG_4193.jpg IMG_4194.jpg

  3. I think you have your answer. I was going to guess the A O Smith Motor Wheel, but that is a solid wheel instead of a spoked wheel.

    Damn, you guys are good. @Barni hit the nail on the head with the Cyclemaster. Here are some more pics. Seeing that it's silver, it's post-'52. IMG_4216.jpg IMG_4215.jpg IMG_4213.jpg IMG_4212.jpg Interesting piece!

    It looks like those little “ fins” on the outside of the hub are fir cooling? Maybe?

    Good find!
