Hi guys just picked this bike up for 25.00 I'm going to restore it which should be fun. Can anyone suggest what wheels I can get for it as the rims are rusty.

probably best to put up some photos, and good close-ups of the rims.
What size wheels are they?

I had some concerns where the brake shoes would clamp on the rims... then I realized that there would be no concerns.... it would be a fixie.
and those hipsters need tatts to have credibility.

just waiting for the OP to return and then we can be serious and answer the questions.

I opened an account at FlickR .... Im a tech dinosaur but i worked out how to upload them to there, and then copy the link to this forum. Its a bit of a nuisance having to do it via a third party, but anyway, its not too hard.
