In Search of: Shimano Nexus 3 speed 16" rear wheel,...

As the title states, I'm looking for a PREBUILT Shimano Nexus 3 speed rear wheel to replace the one from my Dahon Curve. ThorUSA said they didn't have access to a replacement wheel, so I need to see if I can locate it myself. I don't currently have a place to get a wheel built, and I'm not interested in doing it myself (as it'll be a complete disaster). Any information, especially a link to purchase the wheel, would be greatly appriciated.

PS: Please don't suggest a Brompton rear wheel,...OR me building the wheel myself. Thanks!!!

I received a callback,...Bfold couldn't help me. I called Green Zone Bikes, hopefully they'll be able to assist me.

The Dahon Curve uses a Sturmey Archer rear hub surely? Not a Shimano Nexus..?

Look it up,...the new rear wheel has the same OLD, and now has a Shimano Nexus IGH. You wouldn't be asking me this if you Googled it.
