Vintage Pashley Rebuild - Broken Wheel

Hello everyone, I’m new here, so apologies if this is in the wrong area. I’m trying to restore this vintage Pashley tricycle for a friend with limited mobility. I’ve hit a problem with the rear drive wheel- where the spokes sit on the hub has broken and so theRe are 3 loose spokes. I’ve contacted dealers up and down the country, who in turn have contacted Pashley but we can’t source replacement wheels. This basically has left this trike destined for the scrap heap.

I really don’t want this to happen- is there any way that the whee can be repaired?

If they’re 550 wheels, Wheelchair rims are very similar.

If it's a Picador?
Then it should be a 20 inch wheel. They used this size on many of their tricycles, and still do use it.

Would getting both rear wheels rebuilt be an option, within budget.
