    Can Anyone Identify These Wheels

    Can anyone identify what brand these wheels are.
    They were made around '75 or '76 & may be of English origin.
    I thought they were Lester, but the Lester ones are 7 spoke, these are essentially 14 spoke.
    Ive google imaged all sorts of different descriptions & turned up nothing.
    Over to you guys now.
    My money is on husa for the win

    Are you sure some muppet didn't just go dog on some Lester's with a dremel?

    They look similar to Campagnolo's from an early 80's Ducati

    On second thought, maybe not - the Ducatis all seem to have had 5(10) or 6(12) spokes

    It's what it looks like, maybe they did it "properly" and used a milling machine

    Lesters with the spokes machined out. What's the finish on the "inside" of the spokes ? Machining marks ?

    Edit - yes, I've now seen Husas post - it crossed with mine - and I'm standing by my opinion.

    Well done on the wheels, i had a feeling it wouldnt take long.
    I knew the bike was built to its current state near the end of '75 in England, so no suprise the wheels are from Dartford.
    Moving along, can anyone identify the fairing?
    Ive seen an identical one in a google search on a k2, which means its not a one off.
    I will link that pic when im not posting from a tiny device from the back of a moving car.

    Then again the badge doesn't say that now does it.
    On a second look it could also be Rickman

    Here's a couple more pics of different bikes wearing the same fairing from google images.
    I still have no idea what brand it is.
    Any more suggestions would be welcomed.
