  1. Rear rim rotted away, need new rim

    Transalp
    Need some advice how to get a properly made rear rim fitted to my hub after rear rim has rotted away on my 1995 model. Discovered it when I was pulling off the tire for the first time on my 1995 model. How do you fit the hose by the way, do you use rim lock ? Thanks.
