Umm, that came from the mid-west, didn't it?

The car did, and it's fabulous. The wheels are from Chris Coddington (HRBB: Hot Rods By Boyd) in Anaheim (unless I'm mistaken) and are equally fabulous.

They were not inexpensive, but worth every penny if they are the look a guy is after (they are stunning on @Joe Fortino's equally stunning car). To my knowledge, no Kalifornia Replica builder had anything to do with them, although I'm sure Greg could commission a set for anybody willing to pay for them.

FWIW, the OP's ad for restored original Rudge wheels and all attendant hardware is a screaming deal, if they are in fact original. Those things are rare like holy relics of an age long gone, and generally about as expensive.

I agree. I've seen sets of Alfins for almost that much, which means you're pretty much getting the wheels at HRBB prices and the axles for free.

I have been working on a fake Rudge set up similar to what Pieter did.

Pieter welded 1/4" studs to his lug bolts.  I use studs and lug nuts so I couldn't do that. I have some thin nuts I silver soldered studs to.  I will put them over the lug nuts.

Then I will bolt on a cut-down pan with a ring of 1/4" cap nuts an Empi spinner.

I have to figure out how much to cut off the pans and shorten my 14mm studs so the thin nuts fit against the lug nuts.

When I lived in Tiverton, Rhode Island I knew of a guy who was fabricating safety rails for sail boats and some of the 356 guys were getting replacement over riders from him.

Those guys are all over the country, usually near big boat populations.

Try googling boat safety rail near me" and see what'cha get.  All they need is an example to go by, or a decent drawing.  They're actually pretty easy to bend up, but there are a lot of variations in the cars (even the originals).

Bob Chase aka "the Overrider guy" from Grey Eagle passed a few years ago (2018 from memory) and last I heard no one had stepped up to fill his shoes... at least I have not found anyone.

I was pretty certain that he had passed too. I was surprised the website was still active which led me to believe someone took it over. But I could be wrong. Lord knows I've been wrong plenty.
