Evening Nelson. It's tough to say without seeing the wheel. If you still have it, you should post a few pics. Was the hub threaded on both sides? It occurs to me that perhaps it was threaded for a left sided drum brake, and you laced the wheel backwards? Again difficult to say without seeing it. Have a nice weekend.

Freewheel was the same.. Upon close inspection, I discovered that the freewheel threading on the hub was left-hand thread. Any suggestions?
