I have asked for a photo
and yes it’s A thing.......
especially of the back of wheel studs that
hold the two Rim halves together
if they are ‘messy welds’ they would be
a Douglas Vespa Kingsford factory product - Birmingham
The normally seen: Italian Piaggio type 8 inch Wheel rims have
lovely neat bolt backs welded into the rim half.
we have 5 early 1950s Douglas projects on the go!
All with Club Members at the moment!
if they are an ‘English type‘ it would be
as good spare wheel talking point ‘on the right bike’
I will let you know how we go.....
These have now gone to rolf
An almost Patina paint match for one the current
3 vespa projects that he’s working on!
