Buckled wheel.
« on: 25.04. 2007 01:36 »
I have been trying to respoke a rear wheel for a 51 Plunger frame Gold flash. I seem to have one side close to true, and now find a decent sized dent in the other side. possibly about 1/8 - 1/4 inch ding in the rim. some of the spokes are unevenly tensioned as a result, though i am no expert.

Any clues on how to remove the dent. is it possible to remove?

Get a good replacement rim. Buchanan's is is a good source.
