Wanted: BX Roadwheels

Post by DLM » Mon Mar 19, 2007 1:30 pm

Does anyone have any spare BX roadwheels in/near the South Hants area? Temporarily immobile due to some rotten rims that can't be re-used unless an inner tube is inserted inside the tubeless tyre ..... Please PM with details.

I wasn't driving a Michelin at the time..... a large part of the problem.

Quite likely got some here. Appreciate the distance but get them sent down by Parcel Force if wanted? If so pm me and I`ll get something sorted asap.
Usual charge will apply- i.e postal costs only!

Many thanks for the kind offers of help - I've held fire because Kitch was looking for me in a good local scrappy today. Unfortunately there was nary a 14" wheel of any description to be found - not even a ZX, 306(?) or 405 wheel. I'll keep looking locally but again, thanks for the offers given.

I need at least one wheel urgently, to help with the logistics of collecting another BX and giving it a pre-MOT check. I'll try locally at Silverlake (thus called because you need to cross their palms with plenty of it, regardless of what you're after), or possibly the scrappy Chichester way that's had a couple of BXs recently.

Moral - you get what you don't pay for. The current free-to-good-home BX spent much of its life half-way up a Welsh mountain and the rough tracks and Welsh rain have taken their toll. I've NEVER had this problem with rims before - only when hitting the mother and father of a pothole and bending the rim very noticeablyhave I ever had a rim-related "puncture".
