  3. Wanted: RD08 Dommie Rear Rim

    Does anyone have a spare rear rim (17x2.50) that they are selling? I have stripped my wheels down ready for powder coat and found that there is an area around the tyre valve, where the outer surface is starting to de-laminate. Colour is not an issue as i'm having the Hubs and Rims powder coated

  10. Ready for Winter Again!
