I bought (and recommmend) a heavy-duty 26x2.125" front & rear wheel set made of chromed steel, with thick 12 gauge spokes and beefy old-style coaster brake from www.bikeworldusa.com. They sell it together or just the front or rear wheel. If they don't have it, ask and they might be able to special order it.
The Wheelmaster is a good idea(if u have the money) or u could build your own wheel/wheels to your own specifications.It's a handy skill & not difficult once u get the hang of it,also very rewarding.
If u intend building your own let me know i'll post a video on "how to".
The parts are no problem...any descent bicycle shop can sell u the parts & there's always the internet for anything really specialized.Good Motorbike shops also sell parts u can use(eg,10 Guage spokes)
no, not where i'm at. bike shops here cater mostly to elitist cyclists who look down on motorized bikers. they laugh at vintage bikes and vintage hardware. i'm not even going to bring up the past thread here about bike shops. but yes, good old internet can help you find parts. takes weeks, but yeah.
