Nice of Jakub to let us know about the wood wheel and rim. I'm not sure how wide the rim is, but it may take a normal 26x1-1/2 single tube tire if someone has a '20's-'30's bike to fit. Appears to be a 36 spoke wheel, and usually those bikes in the US came with a coaster brake in that size. The 28's were varied between fixed and coaster, but I don't recall seeing any with freewheels, which the Polish wheel appears to have. The 26" and smaller sizes were overwhelmingly coaster brake in use. They look nice and would probably work if cost to get them here isn't too
dear.
