    Brand new pair of wheels I bought online, but I now am getting a 700c frame so these have to go.

    I paid £40 for these wheels and they're brand new, so £25 posted is fair seeing as they're unused. Bolted axels. 27" x 1/4

    They are alloy but the front one has a chrome finish and would look great for a resto project, the rear one doesn't have a chrome finish but is brand new.

    SOLD



    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


    Next are my 27x 1/14 Weinmann rims on Shimano hubs which are Quick release and have a 6 speed Shimano UG freewheel on them, in good condition, but not chrome finished like the pair above.

    £35 posted.

    I also have some 27" x 1/14" Raleigh tyres for sale

    £8 for the pair posted.

    I also have some SR SAKAE CUSTOM Road Champion Alloy drop bars.

    They need some work to get them back to good work so I'm asking for £8 posted.

    Just need the tape pulled off and polished.

    I have a pair of Weinmann long drop brakes and Weinmann drop brake levers

    Are any of these wheels 700c? I get the impression not from your post but thought I'd double check.

    I might be interested in the tyres. I am having trouble :blush: measuring the wheels to check the size I need.

    Feel free to PM me if you would like them. These tyres are 27" for 27" wheels though, not 700c.

    http://sheldonbrown.com/rim-sizing.html <--That will show you how :smile:

    They would be for a Coventry Eagle from about late seventies or early eighties, so I think the current wheels are imperial, rather than metric. I am having trouble working out how to measure the wheels. :blush:

    I have printed that off, thank you. :thumbsup: I will try again in daylight tomorrow. If someone comes along who knows they are the right size, you need not wait for me to stop puzzling over the size. :blush:

    I'm not too sure of that myself to be honest. I would assume they would be 27" too though. The tyres don't seem to be going anywhere fast anyway lol, so I can hold on.

    As Sheldon says, the axle gets in the way.

    I think the bead seat diameter is 26½ inches, to which he says to add 6 to 8mm. :wacko:

    8mm is 5 16ths of an inch. :scratch:

    It's not too important lol, if it's too hard to work out, then feel free to leave it. I'd rather you didn't buy them and find out they don't fit :smile:

    Yes please, I would like your tyres.

    I have been looking again and measuring. It was after I decided that the wheels are imperial and I need 27 inch tyres, that I spotted the size on my tyres, which says 27 " x 1¼.

    This will get the bike back in use again. :thumbsup:
