Just bought a bike with what I'm told is a
Pre- 1989 California Sidecar FSI (Friendship I). The wheel is spoked with a center hub, no lug nuts. The center hub requires a cover or cap. I need that part. It's outer diameter, e.g the inside of the center hub, is 1.855 inches (new vernier caliper, first use, possible operator error!).
Anyone have one of these, please let me know. Thanks, and thanks to Lonnie of Hack'n

Google a company- Bearing Buddy. They make many grease caps to fit trailer hubs. Check their web site, I know the have a size chart there.

1.855 should be between 46 and 47 MM if my memory is still working. They are sure to have something in this size range. Happy hunting.
