My current project needs some wheels, it came with some Shimano 105 hub wheels, just given the hubs a going over, re-lubed etc and they seem fine.

However the rear rim is goose'd and the front could probably do with new spokes, question is what rims to go for? a modern Mavic rim and desticker it or can you get 80's rims from somewhere?

Keep an eye on evilbay, there's usually quite a few on there including NOS.

What rims have you currently got?

Not sure what the current rims are, there's no markings or stickers on them.

Hi
Check out www.matuzmaster.hu
Geoff usually has a good selection of rims and shipping is pretty reasonable. Helped me out before.

Maybe look for a good condition 2nd hand pair of wheels?- by the time you buy new or NOS rims and suitable spokes etc you've spent more than you would've on a decent set of used wheels.
