Francis Barnett Model 9 wheel rebuild time

Post  dbrown7 on Thu Sep 29, 2016 9:46 pm

Hi all,
My FB model 9 had really corroded rims and spokes. I stripped them to have the hubs shot blasted and unfortunately they got thrown out. I am now preparing to have the hubs shot blasted and the wheels rebuilt.
The questions are;
What size rim should I have on the front?
What size rim should I have on the rear?
What size should the spokes be?
What wheel offset should there be front and rear?

Has any member got any Model 9 spares for sale such as seat, mudguards, handlebars, handlebar controls etc?
Any help much appreciated.
Kind regards
David Brown
