I have a 1982 Raleigh Gran Sport and am finding it difficult to stop the rear wheel from going out of true. I enjoy riding the bike and would keep the original wheels but need something more robust to ride on. Any ideas on replacements either new or in better condition. Am in North Yorkshire but can travel. Any advice would be much appreciated obviously most modern rear wheels are too wide and the campagnolo rear cluster makes it harder still.

Thanks

Why not keep your existing hubs and build up with new spokes and rims ?

I build wheels, and can do mail order if you wanted some built

Thanks that may be the answer in the end, am having the wheel straightened for the moment and see if it lasts any better this time. I am anxious to keep the bike as original as possible.
