I bought some inexpensive single wall aluminum rims with the same number of spoke holes, laid them on top of the old factory wheel and just 'moved up' the old spokes & nipples from one rim to the other. A little touch of true and I was good to go.

Is that your ride?
It was. I gave it to my cycling nephew when I got a new Curl.
