Default Who made this spool wheel?

I just picked up a 21" front wheel with a single disc for my Harman girder. Unbelievably it fit very well. I have to machine some spacers (no I am not leaving the washers ), and it looks like I have plenty of room for a bracket to support a caliper for the mini-disc setup. The disc is pertty pittedso a new one is in order. Does anyone know who made the Hub? Way cool. It is an oldie and suits the front end well. The rim is a Takasago and an OLD Avon Speedmaster II.

Looks like Hallcraft, especially with that disc.

Sorry for the "hub-bub".... yes.... Hub. I was wondering about Hallcraft, but couldn't find an image of it to verify.

You're just missing the cover.

Thanks... Looks like a Hurst/Airheart caliper. I have the cover, need to make a spacer (and a new disc )

Thanks Danny. I am going to go for the Hurst system for the caliper et al as that is what the wheel was designed for. PS... thanks for the feedback on the Santiago rear axle. I am in the midst of a trike build. My wife used to drive a Sporty but for health reasons can't ride any more. So, I am building a trike based loosely on Cad Bike 43 from Mark "Duckman" van der Kwaak's web site to accommodate and get her back in the wind. I appreciate the help in figuring some of the details out.

That hub came in spool, single and double disc versions from Hallcraft. Here's a shot of the basic spool. It seems to me that this one I sold some time ago was a 36 hole version. All the others, spool or brake, that I've seen have been 40 hole.

Hallcraft also marketed two versions of a mini drum brake. The mini brake was full width, and what they called "son of mini brake" had the same type of spool/hub on the non brake side. (second pic)

M.O.Ther, those are both cool. The single flange on I have is a 36, I had another single disk and it was a 40.
