Subject: [CR]BSA track hub question

I have a set of BSA track wheels; the rear flange is higher (larger diameter) than the front, though not nearly as high as a Campy hi-flange hub. The question, however, is about the front: were track hubs made so that there were no coverings for the bearings, or am I missing a piece (two pieces, I guess) that covers the bearings? The hub does not appear as if it is missing a piece or there is a place for a piece to fit on to cover the bearings. But the hub appears constructed so that the bearings are open though held in with the bearing race.

Thank you.

Cheers.
