Subject:Early JD front brake laced to Hend Wheel Date:Sat Feb 2 10:44:00 2008
I have an original Henderson 18" wheel laced to an early (29?) JD front hub (earliest with front brake) I'm told it was on a super x. The brake assembly looks similar but not the same ofcourse. Since I'm building a rider and not primarily a show bike, I am thinking of using it as the brake assembly appears to be more substancial and therefor might offer better stopping power and maybe even easier to obtain parts. I want to use a Zanetti rim and re-lace to this JD hub. My question is: Are the super x and KJ front wheel assemblies, brakes, lacing ofset etc. dimentionally the same?
