Decided to get rid of the hard old knobbies and put nice new trials tyres on.
Well it was a good idea at least :-?
Rear rim looked nice on the outside, but as soon as I tried to pull the tyre off there was trouble.....tyre was rusted to the rim and the rim and nipples were cooked. :cry:

So what should have been a half hour job has turned into a monster.
Luckily I have a spare wheel but is has a damaged hub, so it looks like a wheel rebuild coming up.
A mate gave me a handful of decent spoke nipples so just need to re-plate the old spokes which thankfully came off 9k after a bit of coaxing. :D
