In Dulcinea I´ve put the front wheel from a Benelli Tornado. I´ll have a look at the numer of the rim next time I go to the garage. I guess it´s a bit wider than the rims for the morini (not sure). The brake is the same apart of the wings for cooling.

But right now I´m trying to mount a dobledisc with a 13 mm pump like I have it in Rocinante because I´m willing to do a trip down to spain this year. That means about 10 days of 500km mountan lanes each, and therefore I prefer to have a real good brake :wink:

Hi Pedro,

this is the rim of my 230 doblesimplex from a Tornado

Don´t know if you realy can see it: WM2/18 RECORD RM01/4700
The rim of my dobledisc: WM2/1.85 - 18/36 RECORD RM-01 -4792

I was wrong, the rim of the drumbrake is about 3 mm narrower. I´m riding 90/90 on both wheels (not sure if allowed, but I´ve got it in my papers :wink: )

good luck hunting for a Borrani rim :wink:

The spoke angle would be wrong for a double drum, otherwise it's the right rim.

I think it wasn't mentioned here yet, and for the archive/ for what our grand children will aks for in the year 20...

The number of the 'double drum' Borrani wheel is:

Borrani WM2 ' 18 Record RM 01 4623

Strangly enough, i also found a wider Borrani WM3 18 RM 01 4623/ 1 as a front '230' drum rim, which is basicly the same one as the '180' drummed rear wheel rim...may i confuse you for ever :twisted:

Hope it helps
Tom

Thanks Tom,

I put a notification on ebay, and amazingly within a couple of months an unused one came along that a chap had had in his loft for the past 40 years, just waiting for that special project that never happened. Seek and ye shall find (if your lucky)
