I'd check with velocity! They will custom paint their rims, so you might get one for asking. I'm not sure if it's in your budget though.

I email them and learned they can't recreate the hoops. It was worth a shot :-)

Check places that do vinyl wrapping for cars, might be able to have it done for a decent price. They do whole cars and it holds up to the elements, I'd imagine it'd work well for wheels if that wasn't what velocity did to begin with.

Well, the hunt is still on. I was hoping the guy at the telephone number listed above did in fact have a wheel for sale. After sending a payment via pay pal, I have not received it and now have to go through the long drawn out procedure to get my money back. Live and learn.....;-(

I have come to the conclusion the checkered rims are unicorns. I have stopped looking for them. Now its time to find a replacement that will look good on my old white and black Nishiki Prestige SS. Thank you to the folks that sent PM'S and such. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Shady stuff

So glad to get my money back (Thank you Paypal) from the shady seller. I had an idea something wasn't right when he wanted the money transferred as family/friends vs. a normal transaction.

Any sign company can cut you a 2 piece (1 for each side) decal....you can provide the file or they can produce it...white or black etc.
I am not sure of the price but it can be done.
If you don't like vinyl apply the decal and paint the negative with light coats of paint, let dry well and then peel off the decal leaving the painted squares behind.
Best, Ben
