Looks like a set of Phelps - I installed a set on a '13 Touring like that BUT he's missing the correct caps - the wheel retainers look like what he's using for caps.
Definitely Phelps. Wheel retaining plate says it all
Hi From Iowa! Does anyone know what the caps for this Phelps style look like? I have a set of caps for a Phelps set that has the little "ears" that the springs on the wheel lock into. There must have been at least 2 Phelps styles? Thanks John
Interesting. I found a reference for the hubcaps in an earlier thread from 2012.
This is one of the caps that were included with a Phelps set I installed (after Kevin P. fixed me up w/new rear hubs !) on a fellow's 1913 Touring. The caps had a single stud in the rear that screwed into a receiving hole in the retainer plate - might not be original (according to the above posted info. by John) but have not seen any other type.
Iíve spent WAY too much time on this subject!! After researching as many pictures from the era as I could find I have cast some caps that Iím pretty confident are correct (or close to)!! I believe the originals were made in early ďdie castĒ , and of course they have all crumbled.
A option to make some more Iím considering is to get them CNC machined in aluminum as I now have 2 sets of wheels, one set 30x3-1/2 and one set of 21Ē. Iíve just made a set of new rear hubs and some front brake adapters
