I started my latest rebuild of my '70 Commando whilst I was living in Italy. When I got to the (oversized) rear wheel I realised the rim was shot and had a new one and some 4mm stainless spokes flown out. All quite easy (pre brexit). Then came the hard part, finding somone to lace it up. Despite the large British bike following out there, it took me months to find someone to do it, but finally I found myself on the 4 hour drive from my home to get it done in Milan.
