Then Its a 47? safety bead....what the hell do I have? I dont have another rim next to it to compare, so I have read the description in palmers, and the Information here ( Thank you Robbie and Jerry) and I'm not sure what it is.... Palmers says the standard rim is almost flush with the tire, this rim does seem to flare up a bit more....I post some more pictures, Thanks for the help guys!! Adam

Your very last picture does not look like a safety bead type. The truth is in where the picture vanishes around the radius, no sign of a safety bead. Your hub is mid fifties at least since the zerk started in '55. or not! ( note that the entire thrust assembly with zerk was a "kit" that could retrofit anything!). What does the main body of the hub look like? It could easily be an early wheel with an updated thrust cover.

Robbie, I'm going to take off the zerk thrust end cover, Its going on a 51, my other wheel hub is the earlier type. Thank you for your response, at least I know what I have now. Adam
