26 X 1 3/8 Wheels or Rims

Postby FatGuts » Wed Feb 19, 2014 9:24 pm

I am after a couple of Westwood style wheels with a size of 26 X 1 3/8. Must be steel and chrome or of they are a bit rusty, re chromable.

I prefer a rear wheel with 40 spokes but they are hard t get now and would be happy with 36 spoke wheels as long as the rear has a 3 speed hub or can be retrofitted with one.

Reasonable prices considered and the closer the better. I am in Cantberra.

I can get new but I am scoping this option first as I would rather recycle than replace.

Would you kindly tell us where we can purchase new rims in chromium - plated steel, Westwood, 26 x 1 3/8 " ? So many old Raleigh three-speed bikes need these new rims. Thanks.
