Posted by: Drew TITLE: BALLOON:   Morrow blackout hub ?
Looking for any details on a hub....brake arm reads ~Morrow~.....it~s a blackout hub, which reads "Eclipse Machine Division - Elmira NY - made in USA - 04 36 43".
I assume the number 36 indicates # of spokes, and the 04 43 means April, 1943 ? Any history details are appriciated.

Thanks for the info.....for some reason this hub only has the numbers I mentioned. The bike is a Roadmaster w/curved fender braces, I figure the bike is 1942-45 because of it~s blackout hubs.

D = 1934
E = 1935
