MWS makes their own spokes “the spokes are thicker (or butted) at the end which goes through the wheel centre to make the spokes stronger, but the spoke size is determined by the smaller diameter of the main part of the wire and not the butted end.
We roll the threads into the ends because this gives a much stronger thread than removing some of the steel by cutting.
You might be able to pick it up now from the news stands.
Anyway this chap called Oliver Smith runs a business called Motor Wheel Service International, MWS, which was started in 1927, yes that’s right, it during the Bentley time and he now runs this family business that his grandfather bought in 1947.
I can never work out whether it’s a clever idea to use several bits of wire to support a heavy vehicle, a vintage Bentley comes to mind, or maybe it was an invention channelled through the Black Arts.Either that or he had been looked after rather well by BMC.Remember ladies and gentlemen keep ‘em tuned, Rich Hello, it's Richard here again.Well, 17 days earlier on the 18th October at the Earls Court Motor show the MGC was released to the public and all the journos were keen to test this new six cylinder MG. The heading says “Softly, Softly – Stable high speed cruising; smooth, quiet engine sluggish at low revs; good roadholding; clumsy steering; good brakes and economy; seats comfortable but lack support; dated finish and controls.” The MGC they tested was NJB 649F which appears to be the only time this car was written about in a magazine.The engine was “described in detail in our October 21st issue, the new engine is a modified, lightened and seven-bearing version of the old Healey six:” “With 53% more power yet only 18% more weight the MGC can be expected to go much quicker than the B, and it does: top speed, for example, was 118.2 mph for our hard-top two seater, compared with the 106.5 mph attained by the similar version of the MGB which was tested in 1964.” Talking about the positive aspects in the article it article says “Certainly the new model amply satisfies one of the prime requirements of grand touring – the ability to cruise with complete effortlessness at high speeds.” “Also GT in character are some improvements to interior safety and comfort: rubber winders for the windows, neatly recessed door locks and some welcome additional fore-and-aft adjustment for the driver’s seat.” It does say that rake adjustments for the seats are “primitive and inadequate as ever, the heater has inferior controls and remains an extra, the glove compartment is crude.” “Despite these faults, general comfort is quite good and there are few cars that can outpace the MGC at anything near its £1,163 price tag” You’d have to fork out around £20,000 to buy one today.
