www.sun-ringle.com/ shows that they make these rims in black and polished, go to the BMX section and you will find them. I suggest you contact a LBS who will deal direct with Sunringle and you shouldn't have much trouble getting them. I use Velocity rims on my small wheel bikes and tandem so when I need a certain rim I contact them firstly by email to see if they have them, then I talk to my LBS guys who simply order them in. I can even order special drillings and colours.

Stevegor, thanks for the link to the sun-ringle website. I hadn't seen it before and wasn't sure if the silver rims were still being made. Now that I know they exist I can get the LBS to order them.

AEO, thanks for the eBay lead!
