Best of luck with that particular search. Velo wheels/hubs from the 1930s seemed to be unobtanium when I was looking, and that was close on ten years ago now.

I'm sure I read somewhere about someone utilizing a hub from some Jap trail bike (DT 175, maybe?).
Absolute heresy of course, but if it gets a bike back on the road..

My post-war Francis Barnett cruiser has a 6" drum and a 1/2" spindle so might be worth looking for one of them. British Hub I imagine.
