    Got these hubs for a project I am working on, both are original 36 hole schwinn high flange hubs. Curious as to what these might have come off of originally. I was thinking they were for an old track bike which they may have been but the bike I am working on is a 1939 Schwinn track bike and these hubs are not correct. So if anyone has any idea on what they are from or what they might be worth I would appreciate it. Also if anyone has a prewar schwinn paramount high flange front track hub they would be willing to part with let me know.

    Thanks

    They were used on the prewar and early postwar World/New World lightweights when the bikes were equipped with rim brakes rather than coaster brakes.

    i have a prewar schwinn paramount track bike I am working on restoring, so these aren't quite correct. The flanges look similar but the axles on the paramount track hubs were much smaller diameter.
