Early Alloys

Recommended Posts

The early alloy rim, of course, is still available new: $240-ish to $300-ish each. The new rims are -- I believe -- still cast by FPS, as were the originals. Try BluntTech or Rogerstii for reasonable prices.

Old (period) rims occasionally pop up but plan on spending $60 to $150 for each rim to restore it, depending on condition (dents, curb rash, out-of-true, etc.): 40-year-old alloys are rarely perfect! Prices for these period rims are depressed, I believe, by the availability of the new versions -- I saw a decent set of 4 sell for $400-ish maybe six months ago. If restoration averaged $100 per rim, the buyer would be at $800 for the set in total (versus $1,000 to $1,200 for a new set).
