These are hard to find but its worth pointing out that they were made on the USA by a sewing machine company (can't recall at the moment which one) under license from S/A . Mead was the first American company to offer them as an option on their bikes. Sears used them as a standard hub on the Master and the Chief...perhaps some others.
