Maurice  in Maidstone is your best bet .
retired Motorcycle engineer ,does them in his shed in his back garden.
Can supply 3 grades of rims/spokes etc .
I cant find his number at the mo but if you phone Motoliner in Maidstone and ask for his number
i think he is their Uncle

Yes he is good but a lot more expensive.
Maurice is retired and does it in his shed in his garden.
