Craig, sounds like Diane is going to be able to supply your needs, but I think UPS is a much easier solution for shipping. The rims can be wrapped in cardboard and shipped for a pretty reasonable fee with UPS, I bet they even pickup from Diane now.

Not sure what is difficult about adding images.
You start an item and click the Plus Sign by ATTACHMENTS AND OTHER OPTIONS
The click the BROWSE word and select the image file from your computer.

Diane, Thank you kindly. I need two 48" x 3/4". Also one 18" x 3/4". If you have a 18" in stock undrilled, that will be fine. I will take it. Please go ahead and ship it. I think shipping the 48" rims via Fastenal will work.

Craig, I have been waiting for the Carters to give me the size rims they needed.  48" but what width?  Jeff and I can roll rims, but have had a hard time getting Al to weld them.  I will end up taking them to another shop that can do the job.  (my welding on lightweight stuff is still in the learning stage)  I think I have a 3/4 x 18", undrilled, in stock.  Do you want me to ship it to you? 
I do not answer the Victory e-mails because I get accused of looking at porn (????!!) if I am on the shop computer.  Al has been bad about answering them lately.

Unfortunately and sadly she is not responding. I talked with Al last week and  he hasn't heard from her. It takes two people to operate the rim building machine.

Have you talked to Diane?  She may still be making them

Now that Victory bicycles are closing, I'm in need of two 48" rims, for 3/4" or 7/8" tires. Also a 18" rim, 3/4". If anyone has rims in these sizes that Diane made, please contact me. Thank you. Unfortunately my work schedule won't last indefinitely.

Wayne, Since you are interested in the South Jersey stuff, from about 1899- 1901 there was a bike manufactured in Vineland called the "South Jersey Special". I'm still working on the Batten bike.

I agree with Brad. My little boy draws pictures and posts them on Facebook.
I'm going to post some photographs, I think they are much better than my sons pictures.
the trouble with pictures, first you must draw them, then photograph them (or scan them), then convert them to a jpeg or gif file, then upload that file to the site.

Following the 'easy peasy' instructions Richard posted, I have loaded a pic followed by a photograph. I'm partial to the photograph as compared to a pic.

Ed Lee can make pear grips, which that bike probably had.  You need to give him the thread diameter and pitch. 

There are other T grips besides what Christian is showing, they can easily be made out of Delrin, to clarify what Craig has said, they actually have a hole perpendicular to the center, the bar has a hole drilled from front to back, and a shaft with special nuts goes through it to hold it on.
