The inner has been cut out of an 18 inch and welded into a gutted 17 inch rim........

Phoned the guy today, apparently raced 2 or 3 full seasons then used as a track bike ever since.
Welds look good, whoever did it knew their stuff. If it runs true I don't see much of an issue......???

Will take a better pic tomorrow, keen to hear some feedback on this.

I Mean if it has been done by a experienced engineer then should be okay.... But how much do you belive people say. Could have been done by Fred in the shed and happened to have got it true.

Can say I've never seen that before.

Knowing how scarce 17” wheels for those bikes were back in the day.... that’s really ingenious!! You can always send the wheel to get an x-ray if you suspect any cracks. But if all the welds look good and she spins true I’d run it!

Having 8 spokes and 8 independent welds I'm inclined to think it's safe to run. Or at least as a spare!
