fun fact, bottle cap spoke pattern matches a certain US manufacturers rims
Would that manufacturer's name sound anything like "Hardley Ableson"? 🤔
When you see a Ural/Dnepr with fat 16" tires, it's that combination.

Happy trails,

16" will fit bottle cap and Dnepr. When you look at 21" wheels of that manufacturer, it`s the modern ural pattern.

Thanks Claus,
What spokes are used for 16” and 21” wheels?

This I must confess, I did not record in the past. It´s a shame. It´s years ago I did that last time and I should have written that down.
Same with BMW I did not write down what I did here:

I really made a mistake in not documenting my work properly during the last two decades. I do now since a couple of years, but lots of already done labour time is lost...

That would be correct, so technically, with the right spokes, you could lace that to an old HD Hub... No idea if that was on purpose, a WW2 thing or what. Both companies were not know to change stuff real often... Wish I could help you, but all I have is my spare late model drum hub and a complete set of bottle cap wheels...eventually for Myrtle, may be, one day...

Yes, when you're young, you think you'll be young forever :)
And when you are young, you don't need to write anything down because you remember it all.

Chad, you may want to change the title of this ad to what you are not specifically looking for.

I would, but this specific kind of ambiguity highlights my comedic stylings, which is much more important than actually obtaining what I seek. :wink:
