Whatever this wheel originates from, it's not a tricycle . A tricycle hub would have a facility (spline etc) for an tricycle axle, not a conventional bicycle axle.. This wheel clearly is from a single or tandem bicycle. I've seen non sporting type tandems without gears in the past, although perhaps Nick is corrrect about a porteur style bicycle.

BTW: is it Bordo, or Bordeaux, or March or any of the other Noms de ePlume you have been using?

Thank you indeed Rick for that really useful info, like I'm now the proud owner of a industrial tricycle wheel. Have you ever heard of a Porteur ? I think it likely as not comes from one of those. And dates circa 1955. I just wondered whether anybody who had any knowlege of cycling would know the Prior drum brake hub. Regarding the BTW bit, my name is indeed March, when I set up my account I was living in Bordeaux. As to OT, if Porteurs are OT, the wheel is too. If Porteurs are on topic, then a prestigious brand like Prior with aluminium must be too. BTW, did you get to hear the rumour about the Masi industrial monocycle/wheelbarrow ?
