Hi - I'm undertaking the restoration of a Pashley Trike - not exactly a recumbent but I thought since y'all use small wheels you might have some clue here...
Basically - one of the rear rims is pretty badly buckled. Too bent—I fear—to be saved by re-truing.
Naturally with these things, it has a strange rim size - somewhere between BMX (406) and most old UK folders (451) that I cannot seem to find a stockist of, called 440 (500A).
Does anyone have any clues as to any stockist of this size - Ideally UK but EU or worldwide for a lead would be useful. It needs to be drilled for 36h.
If I can't sort it I might be persuaded to switch out to 451 or 406 but then problems with the brake calliper reach may come into play.
Many thanks in advance to anyone that can offer any leads.
