    And the rear rim, came out better than I expected. I used an air belt sander to try and even out the area between spoke holes, doesn't look too bad now. It has a couple of damaged bits still evident which I'll try and resolve with a nylon fibre wheel. I may just use these I think, will look good once spoked up to polished hubs with polished spokes. I'm polishing the exposed edges on the aluminium wheels also, once I've painted them and exposed the polished edges I'll compare them. Still not keen on a fat 16" at the rear though.

I have looked at building a hall effect system, I have all the electronic parts, just haven't got around to building one yet, one day. Plus, I tend to like mechanical things in case you haven't noticed.
    I don't blame you one bit. No sense replacing what works or what you can make for much less money.

    Those wheels look great, You are the only one that will notice anything wrong with them. That bike has way to may other cool things going for one to be distracted by minor pitting in the wheels.
