Hi again everyone-

Latest question regarding the rebuild of my newly acquired 81 R65..

Upon closer examination, it appears previous owner managed to hit a curb or something hard enough to cause what appears to be a flat spot on one side of the front rim, up on the top near the tire bead. I recall a similar issue with my 79 R100RS, and the BMW shop I used at that time sent it somewhere for repairs.

I am not overly comfortable with the thought of repairing a rim with a bit of a flat spot, but do remember that it worked fine with the RS. Is this a fairly common issue with these rims?? The tire holds air, but is visibly flatter for about a two inch section.

I would appreciate any feedback on this issue and perhaps recommendations for the repair work to be completed.


Thanks!!

Tom
