after struggling for a while with a slightly wonky front wheel on a MT500 , with spokes rusted in ,changing odd spokes where I could , ended up going for a full rebuild in the end

I sent it to a place called Brickwood Wheel Builders near Salisbury .
Picked it up last week, proper old school traditional wheel building specialists , impressed with the result . Galvanised spokes and a new matt black rim . Cost was £230. I refitted tyre and back on bike now, good for another 35 years hopefully

Nice job, I enjoy rebuilding my own wheels, I find it a therapeutic distraction.
