Original 18" front wheel with worn but legal Bridgestone BT45.

Very rare in the UK.

I am looking for £25 just to clear space in the garage.

I have a back wheel but am keeping that as it will be needed on the bike.

Where are you based?

Hi Dougie
I am in SA14, halfway between Llanelli and Carmarthen.
Its the rear I really need for the project as it started life as a shadow and has a 16 inch rear wheel  :(  , the front is an 18 already and I think the same pattern as the ascot, but if its not it'd be nice to have a matching pair.
is your spare the same pattern as the one below?
cheers

Yes it is definitely round, condition is good but will give it a good check.

Do you  want it with the tyre left on?

Really?  On North American models, the dink is usually right behind the tank.   :D

What is the definition of a North American 'dink'?

It's a name that you call someone who isn't very bright.

Somewhat like the type of person who would own & drive a Donk.
