The main features of this axle are:
1. One Wheel Drive (left)
2. Journal Bearings
6. The derailleur gear mechanism hanger brazed to the right hand axle casing inner bearing housing, which, together with a narrow “cage” around the block, places the jockey wheels and block closer together, making for better gear changes.
A number of the axles still exist, but not in their original frames. They were originally fitted toThompson Trikes. Use this link or go to Trike Frames in the menu to read the short and very chequered history of the Thompson Trke Frame.
