Just had a quick google on the Dynatech 500 :)

Class :D

They say the frame doesn't like being spread at the rear for a wider wheel. I apologise for the question as I am a 70's rider but are the correct wheels a standard size ?

Cheers

Shaun

I have never had a problem with a dynatech frame - not to say there was never a problem but I have spread the back end on 3 without any issues.
If you are going to rebuild in period them a 130mm rear will slot straight in but a modern rear is 135 so its only 5mm or 2.5 each side.

Cheers

The Wheels for sale in this post at 126 mm will be too narrow then ?
