Wanted: 21 inch split rim front wood wheel.

As the title says. I found my last one a ‘Bimel’ did not fit so I need one more front wheel to get my project rolling.

Ignacio, as I messaged you earlier, I am unfamiliar with what a Bimel wheel is. Is it the whole wheel minus rim, in other words, hub, spokes, and steel felloe, or is it the rim, only? Either way, the guy in Sioux City, IA, who sold them to me, didn't inform me that they were not a set of 4, and I certainly didn't know. I guess if there was a terrific mismatch, I would have discovered it if I had used them.

Hi Terry, when I stripped the paint one had faint markings on it as if it had more lug holes at one time and under the paint was stamped 'Bimel'. As best we can tell it was a short-lived make of car called Bimel. The wheel is very close to a model T wheel but it is just slightly off enough that the bolts barely don't go through and it barely does not fit inside the 21 inch rim.

Here’s the one I have.
It’s got one hub bolt broken off and one spoke has a small crack, but looks tight and solid.

Yes, my guess would be around $50-$60 UPS shipping. If that’s doable I can box it up and check. I was thinking $75 for the wheel plus the ride.
Let me know or email me, Dave

Ignacio, I sent you the wheel and another email per your request. You should see it tomorrow or Tuesday.
I still have received no joy here. PayPal is good thanks, Dave
I was surprised that shipping was only $42 UPS.
I found a recent radiator box worked very nice.
