1896 Roper Steam Bike, 3: Rear Axle & Wheel

Frame only.

Designing the rear hub on my trust-worthy (but ancient..) Autocad 12. Thanks to those individuals who took the time to urge me to look into SolidWorks, or other equally modern software. I will do that one day.

Another chunk of 303 stainless gets chucked and turned. It's quite nice to work with.

Dick supplied the rims to get laced to this hub; from a Columbia bicycle over 100 years old.

Here are the six bearings used to support the rear wheel. Each end of the axle has a five degree taper for the eccentrics to bolt on to.
