Got a geezer bike, sleek in its day, a 10-speed Raleigh Competition, still is a pretty British racing green with the Brooks leather saddle. I replaced original rims decades ago for 27 x 1-1/4 inch steel-plated Araya T519s. The front one took a gouge from a traffic "end-in", a raised wedge sticking in the street that should be outlawed. Question now is, where the heck do you find a rim like this? Thanks for any help.
