WTB BSA Folding Bike Rear Tire/Rim

Post by WP1 » Wed Jan 13, 2021 5:19 am

I just bought an original BSA folding bike minus the rear rim/tire . Does anybody have a correct rear rim and/or tire for sale ? Is anybody reproducing the correct type of tire ? Thanks

It will not be easy to find an original wheel.
Tire size is 26 x 1 3/8 (37-590). Rim is Dunlop U-shape, hub is BSA with BSA Mk X freewheel. 40 spokes.
Tires are still being produced in the Far east. I have a Raleigh brand (made in China) as a spare.

For the time being you can use a 26" ATB-bike's rear wheel, respoked with a freewheel or a coasting brake hub.

Original grips, saddle and front tire. Does anybody have a data base for serial numbers to date it ?
