- English made, good quality steel WM1 21" 40 spoke rim, - which instead of being chromed, is Gloss Black Powder coated, as was common with many British bikes in the 1930's/40's. Black steel rims were also a common fitment to competition bikes before the common adoption of alloy rims - see seperate photo.
This particular rim is the same spacing as chromed item 0291 and has correct spoke spacing to fit single sided Norton front hubs of both International type and early 'Conical' SOHC Manx type.
Final point with these black rims - you often see period photographs where the spokes are also painted black (but nipples normally left plated) - to do this yourself, make up a wooden block with drill holes, then place spokes into the holes thread first and they can then be black sprayed all together. I may be able to obtain black spokes - but would be special order. (note: photo actually shows a black powder coated WM2 rear rim - but the WM1 black rim will have exactly the same finish)
