Compomotive split rims

Recommended Posts

It’s a long shot, would anyone have a spare inner rim for a compotive split rim alloy? As one of mine has cracked, or recommend someone who could repair/weld it?

I would not even entertain welding that as the crack is pretty much underway and looks like the rest would soon start to crack in other areas.

Plenty of places on the web that will make you brand new ones,  but not many will do the rolled edges like the factory comps of the 80s,  but hardly noticable imo.

May be worth getting 2 made as the machine will be set up for the first one anyway so makes sense.

Ebay also has plenty of used inner and outer barrels,  just put in compomotive and measure yours to see if you can find the same size :)

Thanks, would you recommend anyone? Couldn’t see any on eBay

There is another company in Germany,  who make bespoke dishes,  they are fairly cheap but very good quality according to plenty of folks,  I will search for the name and get back to you,  I think off memory they could also offer the rolled edge ?
