Anything and everything to do with spoked motorcycle wheels



The layout of our workshop and operating procedures have now been modified to ensure that we can comply with the Government’s COVID-19 guidelines and we are now back in business!

However, if you wish to visit us, please phone first to book an appointment so that we can maintain social distancing at all times and ensure the safety of our customers and ourselves.

In addition, please remember to use the hand sanitiser provided in order to minimise the risk of transmission of the virus AND, from Friday 24 July, you are required to wear a face mask.

Welcome to the Wheelwise Engineering website.

From his workshop in the village of Cowfold in West Sussex, the owner, Steve Rolfe, builds and repairs spoked motorcycle wheels to the highest standards and to any specification.

With over forty years in the business and a wealth of experience, Steve is always up for a challenge.

Photo Focus

We are really grateful to all of our customers who have provided photos of their completed projects.

There are now over 50 photos in our Gallery  – you can check them all out here.

In this selection we have focussed on bikes restored by one of our most valued and longstanding customers, Paul Scanlon, the owner of Classic Kawasaki.

Paul is a Z1 and triple specialist and, although most of the bikes are Kawasakis, he has also restored Yamahas and Suzukis and there are some examples of these as well.

As you can see in the eighteen images below, his work is carried out to the highest standards and we are proud to be his preferred wheels supplier.

If you want to contact Paul, email him at
