    Looking for a set of XS wheels (spoked) preferably in the KC metro area.

    I've got a set of the (in my opinion, butt ugly) mega-spoked wheels off a Heritage Special. I'd have to drag 'em out and have a look, but I think they're in good shape. They look like these...

    If you're not interested, I completely understand. :rolleyes:

    Two Fronts here in this "Rusty Pile" @ work. Im going to cut the spokes out. Rims are pretty straight actually.
    You can have one free + shipping if you don't find a nicer front or pair.

    I see what you did there;), Id actually be able to use one of those. They are 19" I assume. How much to mission ks?

    Jim, I think the rear would actually be a good candidate for what I'm going to do, which is cover up that weirdness with a set of Moon hubcaps.

    A little minor pitting on the chrome. It'll clean up. Some rust on the spokes. Brake back plate has some marks from a ham fisted mech in the past. Overall looks like it'll work just fine.... 'specially if moons are gonna hide the ugly spoke pattern. :rolleyes:

    I have to admit, that 48 spoke rear is goood looking. The 64 fronts... aah, pass but that rear looks tough ! I'd show it :devilish:

    Agreed, Not sure if the covers are are 1 offs or triumph. They make similar covers for a few Brit front ends.

    Break time, Spokes cut out. 5 min. Solvent bath. Lol. The 77 hub bearings spin okay. :)
    Both rims are equally dirty and Reasonably straight in appearance. Best one is yet to be determined. Not show bike quality as there are visible scratches to polish but not too bad either. Pick one.. :lmao:
    There's the free + shipping follow up

    As I can’t tell much of a difference between the two, whichever one you pick is A OK with me.
