XT250 Rims

Recommended Posts

My 1980 XT250 has alloy rims. Gold anodised i believe. Not bad condition, no major dents or gouges but as im restoring the bike to ‘near new’ I’d like to do something with them. I’ve been told by a wheel restorer re-anodising would be difficult and advised to powder coat or find new rims (which seems impossible). 

The rear is an awkward 17” devil and hard to find a new rim for. The front not so difficult. Would an 18” fit? 

I know there are some xt owners on the site, any advice other than stick with what you got?

Does powder coat risk chipping when fitting tyres?

Aye mark,  i would go for 18   rear and 21 front,  17 is a bitch  for tyres also,[ trials]  , theres a  seller Vintage 1.  [ japan  i think]    sells rims and spokes,  or look at Cental wheel Co,  in uk ,.
