“Real Classic” Readers Recommend……Wheelwise Engineering

In the November 2018 Edition of the Real Classic Magazine, we received testimonials from two members in the RC READERS RECOMMEND section.

“What a pleasure to unreservedly recommend Steve of Wheelwise Engineering (01403 864533). We presented him with a difficult to find and stupidly-expensive-to-replace rim that not only had numerous flats (major and minor), it also turned out to have twists present. The true extent of the many faults really only became painfully apparent when the wheel was in the jig and proved to be a real challenge to eliminate.

The wheel was cleaned, trued and rebuilt and is now fit for another 60-odd years of service. It’s a credit to both the original materials, which six decades from manufacture still permitted the straightening to be achieved, and Steve’s infinite patience and craftsmanship.

When we arrived, there was a chap who had travelled from Wales to drop off rims, which must say something for Steve’s reputation.

Many thanks also to those who recommended him to us. Much appreciated!”

“He rebuilt both sets of wheels for my pre-war TSOs and did a super job, including finding the special taper roller bearings for the front hubs.”
