 Post subject: 26 * 1 3/8" rims

I need 2 rims, which appear to be hen's teeth, so thought I would throw it out to the RB crowd who may have some hiding in their garages or lofts.

I am in the process of restoring a Fentons of York bike, I have the hubs, but the original rims are shot (26 * 1 1/4 tubs) and, as tyres are easier to get for this size, have decided to go 26 * 1 3/8, AKA 650A.

The difficulty I am having is finding the right drillings. I want to put nice, polished alloy rims on it (so I have a chance of stopping!) and need one that is 32 hole and one that is 40 hole.

Can anyone PLEASE help? I have tried the LBS, no joy, I know you can order CR-18s from the states but that is ruinously expensive (and risk of them not being straight when they get here).

I have the cash waiting, having cleared out a load of bikes and frames recently, just NEED these rims :(
