An old Stella bike eBay purchase several weeks ago got munched before it arrived at my door. (Packing so bad it's a miracle the entire bike it wasn't completely thrashed.) The front wheel rim was rather badly damaged. It is a 27" 36-hole rim with a smooth finish inside and a sort of *quilted* cross-hatch pattern on its outer edge. (Several broken spokes, but the hub is fine.)
I don't want to spend a lot of money on this project, but I'd like to obtain another rim like that, or -- even better -- an inexpensive complete front wheel with that quilted pattern on the outside. Anybody got one hanging around they'd to sell? I have no idea if these wheels were used on other French bikes. Maybe some low-end Peugeots?
