There was a post about making "rear" Hayes wire wheels out of front ones. Does any one have the date it was posted? Thanks Mike
I have a car that this was done to. The Hayes front hubs were bored out. T rear hubs were turned down. The two were welded together.
I did that with Budd wire wheel front hubs. Bored them out, turned T rear hubs to fit and welded them together. Worked out great.
The welding in of a rear T hub into the Budd front hub is a good method but.... I suggest the bolting in of a rear T hub when changing a front demountable rim Hayes to rear. There would not be enough clearance to change or replace a spoke if needed. The T wood wheel rear hub needs to be removable in the Hayes change.
My 1924 touring has had the same thing done with its Hayes wheels that was done on Royce's car. I need to figure out how to add auxiliary brakes in the rear. Any ideas Royce?
Layden, good point about changing spokes. I'll have to take that into account. Thanks all.
