I am trying to get a set of vintage sprint/tubular rims with a 32/40 hole drilling for a 1950's track bike...ultimately would like a pair of Fiamme but any from that era would be fine, if anyone can point me in the right direction, thanks
might be worth messaging GB vintage lightweight cycles on facebook, he has a large collection of very nice 50's bikes and parts, has helped me out a few times
Grubby Hilrey Stone might be a good bet.
......grubby or grumpy?? :)
thanks for the pointers, will get in touch
I might well have a pair of Fiammes in 32/40, but it may take me a day or two to find them.
I'd appreciate that dkmike, even if you have a pair that aren't Fiamme I could still be interested
Just had a look on Hilary Stone's website. He has got some 32 hole sprint rims (not Fiamme though), but no 40 hole.
cheers, I'll keep a lookout though for a pair
Think I could have a pair somewhere- I'll have a look and come back to you.
I've sent a PM with some details
You're possibly already sorted now, but if not I'm probably not much help, seeing as my 32/40h rims turned out to be a Fiamme rim and one other, and it seems likely you're only interested in a matching pair.
I am still looking and would consider besides a pair a single rim if it were the correct drilling, if the pair you have are 32/40 would it be possible to send a pic to << firstname.lastname@example.org >>? thanks Griff
Ok, although I should mention that I'd already confirmed that the rims I had had the 32/40 hole drillings. Although I see that I hadn't clarified that the Fiamme one was 32 and non Fiamme was 40.
Here's some pics as I'd rather not start an email correspondence if you're not interested:
thanks for the pics. no worries about email correspondence, can you let me know the price you want? cheers Griff
Righto, I thought £20 plus postage (unless collecting) would be fair considering the rarity and good condition.
I think the price is reasonable how much extra would it cost to post to BT34 5JZ?.........
Sure, I'll pm you so we can discuss the details.
Damn prediction text! Yeah Grumpy ;)
Don't worry about formatting, just type in the text and we'll take care of making sense of it. We will auto-convert links, and if you put asterisks around words we will make them bold.
