Default wheels wanted

Hi all,

Anyone in north Queensland got any wheels or a transport for sale?

I need to make my new Petter Handyman mobile.


Cheers John

I'm curious, why not buy some new generic wheels? Or is it for the vintage look of the thing you want the old stuff? Sounds like there could be a market there, new old wheels!

Same place everything else comes from, made in china to spec...

The piles in Wedgefield sure are impressive, they used to have locos stacked up on each other!
