    uni disc wheel covers

    is there ANYWHERE I can get a set of the old unidisc wheelcovers they used to have so you could cheaply make your regular wheels into a sort of disc wheels? I have a classic funny bike I would love to outfit with some of those just for the nostalgia if anything
    thanks

    Ebay would probably be the place to look. Either that or in the "Classic/Vintage" forum on this site...

    I presume you know about the cut-to-fit wheel covers available (and highly thought of) from wheelbuilder.com

    I would imagine the old Unijets crop up from time to time on eBay. I f you are registered on eBay you can set up a periodic search function where it will alert you if anything comes online matching that item description.

    Best of luck with your search. Post up a photo of the lo-pro!

    Cheers

    hmm I haven't heard about that auto search function...
    haha I wish I could post a photo but right now the bike is in pieces. I got it for $150 and unfortunately the paint is in really bad shape so I disassembled it last night and am going to prep it for new paint one of these days... not really in any hurry though
