Is it Jones, or Dunlop?

Are there any numbers/code on it (looks like there are, on the side we can't see... looks like Jones)?

Not complete but should give some clues, note how the rim has pairs of alternating dimples on 2 rows on your rim.

https://draganfly.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/data/pdf/Rims%20and%20spokes%20BSA.pdf

Draganfly refer to the late A10 early A65 wm2 18" rim for full width hub as 7 (oddly its later seen as 7A part no 41-6006), so you should try and see if it matches and then see all the models the 7A fits which includes ;ate B31/B33. There is another error where a 7A is listed as a 7B but 7B is for a 19" rim but same hub.

I wish I was better versed in this stuff......I have to go by the numbers stamped into the rim to even get close. Looks like it won't fit any of mine? Which is a shame.......that's a steal deal.

Really, good deal.

It's always nice when you find the stamped code that narrows down available fitment...

True, but it apparently was polished away by the re-chroming outfit.

Sorry KC I got busy.

Unit Singles are all I have and I’m not in a position right now to try and compare. All my extra rims are a bit crusty but still have the part numbers……only way I can keep up with what goes with what.

My guess is if it would fit one of mine konmando would know.

Sorry if I gummed up the deal.

Jon is right…….somebody out there needs it!!!!

Don't give up, KC...

The numbers/code do make identifying much easier if the donor bike isn't known. That's one reason why it is a good idea when getting rims re-chromed to ask the plater to preserve the stamps as best as possible. In my experience it can almost always be done (with varying degrees of success).

Gordon, I assume you know that in Bacon's BSA Singles Restoration bible, there are some index pages of wheel information for the various models, including rim stamps, sizes, etc... But no help here unfortunately.

I get what you are saying KC, but in this instance, it is an 18" front rim and even if the part number was known, the demand for an 18" rim versus the more popular and most widely used 19" rim is very limited. Hence, the chances that a member here who is looking for or needs this rim is already slim.

With that said, there are a host of reasons to keep it listed.

1. It doesn't cost anything.
2. Maybe the person who needs it, hasn't seen it yet?
3. Maybe another member acquires a bike that needs this rim
4. Someone decides they want an 18" rim up front and boom...you are there to meet the need.

I could probably find a few more but you get the idea, I'm sure.
