    Star Hubs ID

    Hello!

    I just score this two Star Hubs.
    I see a difference in them so they are from different years.
    They are correct for 1947?

    Regards

    They are covered in great detail in Palmer's 2 volume books. www.howtorestoreyourharleydavidson.com

    The silver hub appears to have a different spoke pattern...

    When they are laced up with spokes, no one will know the difference.
