22"/550A/37-490 Wheels? Is there anywhere to get these?
I've got a Peugeot folder from the early 80's, and it's a great bike for grocery shopping, if heavy and silly. Unfortunately, the front wheel has some damage and needs to be replaced. Looking around on the internet, it seems like nobody still makes wheels for these. Kenda makes tires and tubes, and I've heard Michelin does, but I can't find any of theirs.
A 20" wheel would be a little too short. A 24" wheel won't really fit on the bike. I've read something about putting some kind of spacers on to lengthen the fork, allowing for a 24" wheel, but I have no clue about this. Another issue is that the rear wheel has a drum brake on it, but luckily the rear wheel is fine - for now.
Anyone have any ideas?
