Falcon 81 hubs

Both hubs are 5" british hub ,full width and the same size front and back, CWC will have enough experience to sell you the correct rims if you tell them it is for a francis barnett falcon 81,with the correct drilling in the rim and the correct spoke length ?

whell hub

Scott it is the brake drum that is 5" on the Falcon 81 and they are referred to as 5" hubs, i expect CWC just need the diameter from the inner spoke diameter which as you say is probably around 6", but if you tell them it is for the British Hub full width 5" brake wheels they should have enough to go on ? They must have built hundreds of them over the years ?
