    Anyone know of a supplier of 15" rims I can lace to my existing hubs? Can't seem to find anything by searching the web or this list.

    No joy there but I found rims here:

    Now I just have to figure out if I can lace them to the R100R hubs. Not sure if I can as the spokes are set at quite an angle to suit lacing to the rim edge.

    Thanks for the link. Woody's can do the work but my rim choices are limited to BMW cross lace rims. Fortunately the R1200C used a 15" x 4" rim at the rear. Now I just have to make sure that the rear rim will miss the swing arm and the front rim will not foul on the brake calipers. Zilch available used so it isn't going to be cheap!

    Thanks again!

    Woody isn't cheap, he's done 4 of my Ural rims, but once he does them they won't need done again.
