I have been asked by an acquaintance to drill the five largish holes in a triumph/bsa rear hub to replicate a manx type, and fit the fine gauze to keep rubbish out of the brake. The drilling is no issue, but can anyone tell me how the gauze is fixed in ? I have seen some dreadful looking solutions online and it needs to look like the manx set-up.

You might be able to leave a flange on the inside and JB Weld it to the hub. Probably not what Manx would have done.

My Manx had gauze that was formed into a top-hat section and pushed into the holes from the inside of the hub.The fit was what kept it in place. There were no holes in the brake plate.
