  • Alloy wheels (incorrectly known as rims) are automobile (car, motorcycle and truck) wheels which are made from an alloy of aluminium or magnesium (or sometimes a mixture of both). They are typically lighter for the same strength and provide better heat conduction and improved cosmetic appearance.
  • (Alloy Wheels) A generic term used to describe any non-steel road wheel. The most common alloy wheels are cast aluminum. Technically, an alloy is a mixture of two or more metals. These wheels are known for their light weight and strength.
  • Car wheels made of aluminium, rather than steel. Main advantages include lighter weight and attractive styling. Mostly chosen for style reasons.
  • make brighter and prettier; "we refurbished the guest wing"; "My wife wants us to renovate"
  • Renovate and redecorate (something, esp. a building)
  • (refurbishment) renovation: the state of being restored to its former good condition; "the inn was a renovation of a Colonial house"
  • (Refurbishment (electronics)) Refurbishment is the of maintenance or major repair of an item, either aesthetically or mechanically.

24.5" 1976 Raleigh Sprite 27 3-Speed in Coffee Brown. Disassembled, cleaned up, lubed, and rebuilt. Added Kool Stop Continental brake pads, Dimension cork grips, and a nice large bell. Interesting factoids: This particular bike came with Italian Fiamme alloy rims, probably not stock. The serial number of the bike indicates a manufacture date of Late April 1976 The hub is stamped October 1976 (6 months newer than the frame?!) The chainguard is in the 1977 style (can't explain this). Neither the 3-Speed, nor the 24.5" frame seem to be common for a Sprite. It's a darker shade of 'Coffee' than other Raleighs of the same year. The black B66 seen here was the original saddle for my 1976 Raleigh Tourist. I love this bike! I assume the wheels were upgraded shortly after purchase, and that's when the newer hub was fitted? Or, more likely, it's a 1977 Raleigh Sprite 27, and I'm reading the serial number wrong.

Alloy, Alloy, Alloy… Said the tyre fitter to the police man! My old Fox Alloy wheels have been refurbished to death so a new set of wheels touched down in the UK from Germany today and will soon replace these trusty car shoes… Hipstamatic shot which has been thoroughly worked on with a number of photo editing apps on my phone. I’d like to note that it was taken on the 18th Jan unlike what the info says!
