So happy with my 1981 Lotus Legend. It sat untouched in my parents' garage until I retreived it 6 months ago. It was essentially never ridden until this year. Surprisingly, there were few adjustments needed; wheels had to be trued after a while, that's about it. But I just busted a spoke yesterday, and I was informed by the LBS that if another spoke goes, the wheel's total failure was coming soon. Apparently the rim (Ukai, and pretty narrow) has some dings that can be hammered out only so much.
So what are my options? Rebuild the wheel? New rim? New wheel? It's got a Shimano 600 freewheel (6 speed); I have to stay with that, right? (I have friction shifters, if that's a consideration.) Thanks for your expertise.
