Need some 27 x 1 1/4 wheels

Postby Hemipode » 5 Oct 2012, 8:05pm

I am restoring a 1981 Raleigh Record Ace. Every part of the bike is serviceable & in fact in excellent condition except, unfortunately, the wheels appear to be beyond repair. :(

I'd like to keep the bike as original as possible so does anyone know of a supplier of 27 x 1 1/4 alloy QR wheels with OLN's of 100 & 126 mm ?

I don't mind spending a reasonable amount for some quality ones.

Cheers.

I have 2 pairs of 27" wheels kept as spares that I will probably never now need. Both are used but in good condition.
One set is from a Holdsworth Mistral (probably late 70s) with Campag sf 36/36 gear/fixed hubs on Wolber Super Champion 58 rims. Spokes are plain 14G rustless (not stainless).
The second set is Lambert lf sealed bearing 36/36 gear/fixed hubs on Mavic Module E rims. Spokes are plain 14G stainless steel
Both sets are spaced 126/100 mm.

I am in Exeter and don't know how to send wheels safely. If you are interested contact me.

I'm on the same quest. The only ones I can find are these http://www.amazon.co.uk/Weinmann-Front- ... m_sbs_sg_6 - better ones don't seem to be available. I'd really like some large flange ones...

It appears I have been lucky & my wheels can be brought back to life :D

Thanks for the offer though BigG & for the other replies.

Hi sorry this is a message for BigG. Do you still have the 27 inch wheels offered?
